Deadly coverings

As Lord Bassington–Bassington has long had a soft spot for the music of Death in June, His Lordship has tried to stay abreast not only of the band's own releases, but also the various other musicians who have tried their hands at interpreting the band's music.

There’s been quite a few such covers through the years, but few bands have taken it to the extremes of Down in June (pictured below) have. Springing from the queer theatre circuit of Malmö, Sweden, Down in June have produced a whole album of Death in June covers that occasionally are better than the originals. They are also superb live, as Lord Bassington-Bassington has seen with his own two eyes.

But Lord Bassington-Bassington feels confident that the ultimate Death in June cover band will be the upcoming project of His Lordship's dear friend Mr. Huseby.

Ladies and gentlemen: Meet – Death in Uke!

Despite Lord Bassington-Bassington’s mixed feelings about the ukulele, His Lordship is confident that this will represent nothing less than a musical revolution. If you don't get it, then the uke's on you.
