Paul Nice gives the edit treatment to a Chinese cover of a classic (audio)

 

I could probably throw this under cover2cover (which I desperately need to get back to one of these days), but I’m pretty sure you’re all aware of the Nancy Sinatra cover, which in of itself is a cover of Cher’s original. But this really isn’t in need of a detail analyzation, just attention. This cover is seriously funky; what with skippy drums (given some added choppiness thanks to the editing skills of Paul Nice) and angular guitar and brass punctuation. What helps make it more intriguing is that Asian je ne se qua that was prominent in covers of the this era (you’ll know what I mean when you listen to it). Definitely give this a listen!
