Last night I went to watch German group The Baseballs in Manchester.
As for slating them - so what they do covers? How many times have songs like Mack the Knife, Blue Moon, Summertime Blues and Be Bop a Lula been covered? Many rock & roll acts cover each other songs all the time. I don't listen to chart music if I can help it. Modern R&B, pop etc. - not my thing at all. But when The Baseballs cover things like Rhianna's Umbrella and Lady Gaga's Pokerface in a rockabilly style, I love it!
Most of all, its just a bit of fun. For those not familiar, I leave you with Umbrella - Baseballs stylee! Enjoy :)
