Dress You Up In my Love – Madonna
We are joined in The Crypt by our dear friend She Makes War (Aka @warriorgrrl AKA Laura Kidd) as once again we attempt to arrange, record and produce a collaborative cover track, chosen by you, in just one day.
Just like last time, we will be live blogging the days shenanigans from first thing in the morning, until late at night, using the clever “Cover It Live” window below. Expect video snippets, audio teasers, rushed interviews, filthy photographs, and all manner of good old fashion internet chat room nonsense. Join us..

You can submit your lovingly chosen Crypt Cover suggestions NOW on twitter using the tag #cryptcovers, or pop them in the comments box at the bottom of this post. Please submit as many suggestions as you wish. One of them will take us somewhere fresh and exciting.
5 Things You Should Know About She Makes War
We adore Laura Kidd. Her music is raw, deep and moving, and she is simply captivating in person, even when stood atop a compost heap at our Garden Party last summer. The way she indefatigably smashes new ground as an independent solo artist is an constant inspiration to us, and her creative and technical (geek alert!) talents are seemingly endless. We can’t wait to make beautiful music with her. See Five Things You Should Know About She Makes War Below.
3) Her newest video for “Exit Strategy” was shot in the corner of her living room and features her as Ms Pacman trapped in a Groundhog Day meets horror flick scenario. She has previously made videos dressed as a tree, a unicorn and a circus performer.
4) She’s performed on stage and telly with an eclectic bunch of artists including A-Ha (this is awesome, and well worth a watch for a giggle – Hux), Tricky, Duncan James, Alex Parks and Lil’ Chris and currently plays with French electro band The Penelopes… And she’s sung with David Bowie…in Series 2, Episode 2 of Extras. She also had a lovely chat with Stephen Merchant about glasses and made Ricky Gervais laugh.
