Mos Generator/Void Vator -Covering Queen 7" (White Vinyl ltd. 60)

Retail Edition with Pink OBI

In collaboration with Ripple Music H42 Records presents a limited edition split featuring two great American bands each covering a song by all-time legends QUEEN!

"Mos Generator" around scene veteran Tony Reed dedicate the A-side to Queens' "Son & Daughter" from the 1973 self-titled debut of the legendary Brits. Apart from the fact that the trio naturally plays heavier than the originals, they preserve the quaint character of the number, which originally had little to do with the opulent art-pop of the band's later creative phase.

"Tie Your Mother Down", the better known of the two tracks on the single, has been considerably "boosted", so to speak, by "Void Vator", whereby the quartet does not take away the dignity of the source material any more than their split partners. The fact that neither Reed nor his counterpart Lucas Kanopa do justice to Mercury's masterpieces is another matter, but in purely musical terms, this vinyl is a delightful and sympathetic tribute to one of the greatest rock bands in history.
