I never post on the weekend. Except for now. It’s 3:35 AM and I’m deep in the muck of this and decided to break. I also wanted to get some stuff up here before I forgot about it.
First, MGMT only ever wrote one song worth a shit (“Kids”, duh…) and now UK band The Kooks have taken even that away from them. This is one of the only times a cover version is actually better than the original. I almost feel band for MGMT but not really. (For a puke inducing view you can look at this video of the band playing to a crowd of douchebags in douchebag land (i.e a crowd of fratty-hipsters in an Urban Outfitters parking lot). So, here’s to The Kooks for trumping MGMT with their own damn song.
MP3: The Kooks-Kids
Thing is, though, these kids play with more enthusiasm and attitude than 99.9% of everyone out there.
