When I first found out that Ferocious Fucking Teeth covered "Copper" (my favorite song off "Terraform") on their new tape I was pretty excited, although when I finally listened to the end result I almost didn't recognize it; it had been stripped of its vocals and most of the stuttering guitar riff, leaving only the bottom end. Eventually I saw through the muddiness of the recording (doesn't anyone in New London have a decent 4-track kicking around in an attic somewhere?) and started to enjoy it almost as a psych-rock type rendering, as if Shellac covers were in the realm of something Iron Butterfly would do. The rest of the tape is practically all covers, also, and while I'm about as interested in hearing the Nirvana cover as I am in listening to the Scout Nibblet one, the version of "Rock 'n Roll All Night" is pretty hysterical: it merely repeats the refrain over and over until it takes on the effect of a religious mantra, which it practically was if you were a 12-year-old back in 1977.
The one original song on the tape is "Don't Go", and while the version on the "Fleas Don't Die" compilation is absolutely crushing, this one noodles around a bit. I took the mp3 for it from one of the FFT sites on the internet, so it sounds a bit cleaner; the other two tracks were ripped from the cassette.
