quompilation3

Back in November, in the Pavilion, Girl Band were supporting Honningbarna on their debut in Cork. I’d seen Dublin four-piece Girl Band a few times before so thought I knew what to expect. But nothing prepared me for the seven minutes plus cover version they pulled out of nowhere. It was Blawan’s ‘Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?’ and it was exhilarating. I didn’t know where Girl Band were going to take it next. It transpired that they were covering it for Quompilation #3, which premièred over at Nialler9 this afternoon. Go listen to it, there are some great Irish bands covering their favourite song of 2012. Girl Band’s song is amazing though and I’m glad to see the recorded version stands up as much as the live version. You’ll be able to see the four guys doing ‘Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage?’ at the Quomp’s launch in the Workman’s Club in Dublin this Friday. Listen to the cover below and download it for free from Girl Band’s Bandcamp page.
