Ringy Ringy Ringy up the FBI

Kid Harpoon is a singer songwriter from this fair land of ours, Chatham to be precise, although these days he calls London home. He is signed to XL Records and he writes urbane witty songs that will be released soon in the guise of his debut album.
I saw him once at a small festival in Wales, Workhouse Festival and he was the highlight. Last year he sent out an email asking for suggestions for different covers, I suggested The Ramones and specifically The KKK took my Baby Away. He performed it rather fantastically.

It doesn’t stop there though. My favourite female fronted cowpunk band, The Evangenitals also inject new life into the very same song, below you can see Juli Crockett and Lisa Dee kicking it out on what appears to be a porch. Marvellous.
The Evangenitals are heading over to the UK this summer, notably all over the Edinburgh Festival, but other dates as well. If you have the chance, please go and see them, they are startingly good and you can see all the dates over at their Myspace.
