| ** FIERCE PANDA LAUNCHES THE COVID VERSION SESSIONS! **
** YOUR FAVE BAND COVERS THEIR FAVE SONG IN SUPPORT OF THE NHS!! **
** DESPERATE JOURNALIST + NATIONAL SERVICE + MOON PANDA + JEKYLL + CHINA BEARS COME TO THE LOCKED DOWN ROCKDOWN PARTY!!! **
Well, this is weird. Since the fierce pandemic known as coronavirus arrived on these shores, like so many others we’ve been swerving around fellow shoppers at the Combs Co-op in hot pursuit of the last bag of pasta, watching the sparkling Suffolk stars in the garden, drowning in Yorkshire Tea in the kitchen, and trying to come up with some kind of gentle angle to help keep the mental musical wheels still spinning.
Ipso facto in a moment of shopper-swerving, star-watching, tea-sipping reflection we came up with the fierce panda Covid Version Sessions (a bit like the fierce panda Cover Version Sessions, only with a different spelling and pronunciation). The Covid Version Sessions is where various panda bands locked into rockdown give you, the panda punter, their own personal homespun take on music which touches them in so many ways, and all in support of the National Health Service. Kinda like CVS for the NHS. But then again, perhaps not. Here is a list of the very special tunes for a lot of very special people…
NATIONAL SERVICE ‘LAST JANUARY’ (by The Twilight Sad)
DESPERATE JOURNALIST ‘THE FEAR’ (by Pulp)
MOON PANDA ‘CALL IT FATE, CALL IT KARMA’ (by The Strokes)
CHINA BEARS ‘Hackensack’ (by The Fountains Of Wayne)
JEKYLL ‘NIGHTPORTER’ (by Japan)
Other panda bandas are hard at work while they are away from work, so keep an eye on the fierce panda socials for more news of the Covid Version Session rockdown uploads.
