CoverED Songs Show - 12/1/08

On this very night I played the original versions of songs that would one day be covered by our favorite post-punk/new wave/alternative musicianeers. A different kind of show, really. Not your father's post-punk. Although actually, maybe it sort of was. Here's the link for download:
