I covered Try This at Home at my last gig, possibly my favourite FT to cover. Owing to a rather significant lack of vocal talent (and of guitar, it could be said), I don't cover as many as I'd like to - but with this one I can just shout an strum really fucking hard. Plus I love the idea behind the song.

Have also been previously caught covering The Real Damage and St Christopher. I learned my lesson.

Were you at work in some kind of a store room when you recorded that?!

I also enjoyed following a side link to Mr Dawson's pro drum tutorial, very fucking funny, especially his rage when people don't get the joke.

Kind of, my girlfriend runs a jewellery business from home, so that's our office.

Continuing my retrograde journey through the career of Frank Turner, here's a cover of -Sigh- by Kneejerk. Next - Badger Doritos! (Only joking... or am I?)
