Two For GreyDuck, One For Everybody, And One For Nobody

GD, I heard these two and immediately thought of you.  It's up to you if you think that's a good thing or not.

Apparently Covenant isn't new... I see album dates of 2000, 2001, so on and so forth, so perhaps you're familiar with them already.  But some good stuff there.
Oh look, it's a weird cover of a Pet Shop Boys tune.  Well, Ghost is much too weird for me to explain them, but their original music is very heavy indeed.
I think by definition if you're a member of the Pond Scum, you get some level of enjoyment out of bagpipes.  This song has appeared on The Pond before, back in Saturday Night Tunage V where it was performed by the Victoria Police Pipe Band as opposed to the Red Hot Chili Pipers.  I just realized something, and it terrifies me: in the blurb for the song in SNTV, I mention that I first heard the song "nine years ago."  I wrote that in 2011.  Eeurgh.
So Formula 1 knocks on the door of the Chemical Brothers and says "we like your stuff.  Or, really, our grandkids like your stuff.  Do a song for us."  And the Chemical Brothers said "we like dogs."  The rest, as they say, is history.  This is an awful, awful tune.  However, as a riff dispenser it's top-notch, and I fully expect to be seeing F1 commercials and broadcasts using snippets from the track as backing music.  Other than that?  Well, the "Powered by NEEEEUM" on the car made me laugh.  If you don't get why, say it out loud while watching a F1 car drive past.

1 The "NEEEUM" bit is the only redeeming part of that video, yeGODS that "song" is awful.

On the upside, that "Hellbound Train" performance was SUPERB. *cues it up again*

On the gripping hand, I had to NOPE out of the PSB cover. The singing just put me off.

On the, er, fourth wheel... Covenant is one of those VNV-adjacent acts I haven't gotten 'round to yet. I liked this tune well enough, maybe it's time to go digging.

2 No way that dog could ever win F1. At best he could come in second. Dogs only CHASE cars....

As for the song, I don't laika it....
