Of Montreal: “F*ck the Pain Away” (Peaches)

MP3 via Blowin’ Your Cover

Here’s a blast from the past. In 2006 I was the promotions director at UK’s radio station WRFL. The first big show I booked was a free gig for Of Montreal in UK’s student center grand ballroom, a 1000 capacity space. Even though it wound up being a tornado warning that night, we still packed the place. They treated us to a couple covers that night. Os Mutantes’ “Bat Macumba,” “Til There Was You” from the Music Man and this cover of Peaches’ “F*ck the Pain Away.”

If anyone’s got a recording of the Music Man cover, please send it my way. Until then, here’s my recording of their Os Mutantes cover from the same show. And let this also be a reminder to check out the Of Montreal Covers Archive if you haven’t already — 59 covers and counting!
