Aha! Miserable Scottish buggers The Twilight Sad as re-worked by rotund English bloke Robert Smith. Should be fun. But first the A side 'It Never Was the Same' is taken from the bands excellent 'Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave' album and whilst perhaps not the most thrilling moment on the album it is a perfect enough example of their monochrome rain lashed music  - a place where the Proclaimers meets Joy Division. Thoughtful, introspective rock that you need to own.

Overleaf is where the laughter begins. The 'larger than life' goth rock lord Robert Smith takes on 'There's a Girl In the Corner'. With it being one of my favourite songs on the album I feared Smith might ruin it but it's really totally fine. He re-works it using electronic instruments and slathers his distinctive croak atop. It's not quite up there with Michael McDonalds take on Grizzly Bear's 'While You Wait for the Others' but The Cure fans will love this curio.
