Well in tribute to our friend Peter Mack we will have a look at "Cover is Blown".
Mike told me he wrote the bones of this track in about 10 minutes, a super fun feel we asked Mel to keep the drumming super simple and we did the same.
Peter came up to the studio and recorded his first ever guitar part with a massive effort from Mambo Roberts, it was a special time that wasn't lost on us.
The fabulous Bex sang some backing vocals, and so did my niece Madeline.
The lyrics kinda speak for themselves and Mike had to explain to his wife he wasn't writing in the 1st person :-)
So check out this fun tune that has taken on a special meaning.
Cover is Blown –Sukys/ Hangan
(Mike’s House Alfred Cove 2011)
Are you sure nobody followed you
Lock the doors and turn the phone off too
Is there something that you didn’t do
Have you got someone to cover you
Well let them keep on knocking man that don’t mean nothin
Lets take this night and make it our own
And if they keep on trying we’ll just keep on lying
Until this little cover is blown
Do you care what they’re gunna say
Well they’re gunna say it anyway
Just forget what happened yesterday
It’s just you and me
right here okay
Yeah we best start runnin, you bet them knives are comin
They’re comin just to tear us apart
n’ Hey shutdown ‘n’ run our little cover is done
You stole the best of me but you knew that from the start
Taken from the album "Little Braches from Another World".
