I don’t know a ton about LORETTE VELVETTE – frankly I barely know anything about Tav Falco & Panther Burns, with whom she’s played – but I do know that her cover of Bowie’s “Boys Keep Swinging” from 2000 is better than the original. It hits like a ton of over modulated bricks from the start, and keeps hitting while remaining a pretty faithful interpretation of the original (one of the dozen or so Bowie songs I truly dig). 

It’s from an album called “Rude Angel”. I heard the rest of that album around that time and reckoned that this was the only one worth holding onto.
