OFF! take a stab at compared to what
There are too many things I collect (or accumulate or hoard....) Records-obviously, vans, records with vans on the cover, and records featuring covers of the song "compared to what". Leave it to OFF! to combine all of these oddities into one 7" record. Never mind the fact that you could get the single with 2 different covers on 2 different colors of vinyl! I was definitely curious about how a band whose entire recorded output was only twice as long as the average length of the song "compared to what" would approach this funky classic
So here is an example of what Compared to What usually sounds like
OFF! make the song their own and if you didn't know the lyrics to the original, I don't think you would realize it is a cover. Sounds like OFF!
A good OFF! single, but not a crucial cover of one of my favorite songs.
