In age-old fashion, the bands have each covered one of the other’s songs, with Preoccupations taking on ‘Pontiac ’87’, and Protomartyr having recorded a version of ‘Forbidden’.
Protomartyr’s Joe Casey says: “There’s an old adage that goes something like, ‘if you’re going to cover a song by a beloved Canadian band, it’s best to pick the second shortest one.’ So, ‘Forbidden’ it is. We all really liked the outro part and had the brilliant idea to extend it. And that, my friends, is how you make musical history.”
Listen to ‘Forbidden’ below.
