Episode 062 : Covers with Mustard Plug

Prince may not be a fan, but cover songs are a staple within the music industry.  Covers allow concert goers to sing along with familiar tunes performed in a different way by their favorite artists.  They also allow bands to pay tribute to, or take the "piss" out of their fellow artists.  Join us in this episode as we discuss cover songs, and are joined by special guests "Mustard Plug".
