Since so many have asked me where to find these songs, I'll explain
to the list:
}> 2) Guidance Counsellor
A Chris-Murphy-penned ballad which has been left off several Sloan
albums but has been played live, usually to start the encore set.
(actually, Autobiography is older than the rest of OCTA, I believe,
and was cut from TR). I don't know of any official release, but I
think it's at least covered on Les Amis de Sloan, wherever that went
}> 3) Love Her All I Can
A Kiss cover they used to play all the time before they had any
albums out. They still get requests from the die-hards.
(Can't believe Mandy from Michigan didn't know a Kiss song :)
}> 4) Planet Earth
A Duran Duran cover they played on the TR tour, I think. Sometimes
they'd actually play it themselves, other times it was a lip-synch.
}> 5) Right Brigade
Another old cover tune by this well-known reggae-punk outfit whose
name just won't come into my head right now even though I own their
album which contains that song. (It came to me: Bad Brains)
}> 6) Hot Smoke and Sassafrass
A cover from the OCTA tour by 70's one-hit-wonder Bubble Puppy.
There were several other cover tunes which I only heard them do once
and can't remember the original band, let alone the song title.
To add to the mania:
Shant Pelley <ag344\!/chebucto.ns.ca> had this to say about Re: if you
}lest we forget:
Another Kiss cover
}8) Sob Story
I think this one was a Snob Shop (Laura Borealis) song?
Boo Fucking Hoo!
}9) Smells Like Teen Spirit
I think we can all guess who originally performed this, and no, it
wasn't Wierd Al Yankovic. Chris sang the whole thing with 'la-la's
as if he didn't know the lyrics.
Also, I received this query privately which maybe someone more
skilled in comparing songs to each other can answer:
}Do they have any other songs that sound similar to songs
}"Stove/Smother" that appear on DGC Rarities?
I'd say you should try buying some Eric's Trip :)
