“My Machete” (Interrupted) by Girl From Winter Jargon

During a little practice of this song on piano, something interrupted me.
Usually interruptions make me see red but I’ve grown oddly fond of this one.

The Bad Cover Versions Project

There was once a thing called the “Bad Cover Version” project. People were confused by the name of said project. The original idea behind it all was to take open requests or suggestions of “bad songs” (i.e songs that aren’t very good) and to cover them, or find a way to reinterpret them. Music is of course, subjective. One person’s terrible song is another person’s favourite; consequently, many people mistook the title as self deprecating, others suggested good songs and most of the rules were broken. I am happy with some of them, still very embarrassed by others. (I think it’s okay to feel embarrassed.) I wanted a challenge. The songs range from childhood television theme tunes (Fireman Sam, Poddington Peas) to sexist Burt Bacharach songs, Pet Shop Boys, Siouxsie and The Banshees and Teesside-based post-punk band, “The Chapman Family” who felt that the cover of their song “Anxiety” was… “Prettier than our version…”
