I’m not somebody who’s prone to hyperbole, so I’ll say this in my own typically understated manner: this is the best thing ever to happen to me in my life.

On January 27, Ian Maleney’s Quarter Inch Collective will release Quompilation #1, a download/cassette-only compilation of 13 Irish acts covering their favourite songs from 2009 in their own inimitable styles. The compilation features the diverse line-up of Cloud Castle LakeFlokGinolaHipster YouthKid KarateMarket Force,No Monster ClubPatrick KelleherRhino MagicSacred AnimalsSpiesSquareheadand We Are Losers, although the exact tracklist is being kept firmly under wraps.

Luckily, we’ve been supplied with a couple of advanced screenings from the tape, and today saw Dublin scuzz-pop outfit Squarehead premiere their cover of labelmates Adebisi Shank’s ‘(-_-)’  (in single quotes that almost looks like Napster propaganda.) It’s not just a straight cover though: the trio have added a sun-kissed vocal melody so that we can all now sing along to the tune without looking as demented as I usually do.

Don't know who the covering artist is, but the AS song they did is one of my favorites from the album, so I will have to check this out when I get home.

I wasn't too keen on the singing, it wasn't bad, but it didn't really fit. I liked what they did with the main guitar riff though.
