Hear Sleater-Kinney/ R.E.M supergroup Filthy Friends cover Roxy Music

They’ve taken on ‘Editions Of You’ for the B-side to their recent single.

Back in March, Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, R.E.M guitarist Peter Buck, singer-songwriter Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin and guitarist Kurt Block teamed up to form supergroup Filthy Friends, announcing that they’d be releasing a new single, ‘Any Kind Of Crowd,’ for Record Store Day.

At the same time, they revealed that the single’s B-side would be a cover version of Roxy Music’s ‘Editions Of You.’ If you couldn’t get a copy on Record Store Day, don’t worry – you can still hear the cover because they’ve shared it through the power of the internet. Stepping slightly away from the softer tone of ‘Any Kind Of Crowd,’ the group’s version of the glam rock staple is jagged, putting an aggressive spin on the track from 1973’s ‘For Your Pleasure.’ Corin steps into the shoes of lounge lizard Bryan Ferry, snarling the lyrics over the track.

Listen to Filthy Friends’ cover of ‘Editions Of You’ below, kicking off from around the 3:17 mark.
