Crypt Covers 10: Dancing Years – Saturday 4th January

UPDATE 7-1-14

Video below!

Crypt covers 10 was the beautiful “I’ll Do It All Again” by Leeds own Corrine Bailey Rae suggested by @manwakesup on twitter. It’s SUCH a good song. Quite heartbreaking… The recording was one live take of the whole band and then we just overdubbed all the vocals and a teeny bit of extra brass and strings in the middle chorus. Dancing Years were absolutely fantastic and Dave’s voice slays us every single time. Tea was curry and we were home before midnight. A really lovely day! A joy to do this one. We hope you like it. (it was pretty chilly in the crypt btw…)

It’s 2014 y’all! Well, it’s finally here, the first volume of crypt covers is coming to an end and what a treat we have for you! The beautiful dreamy soundscapey Leeds based wonderboys Dancing Years are joining us this Saturday to herald in the new year.

They are lovely young chaps and no strangers to the crypt. They first recorded here when they were only 8 years old! (Well, maybe slightly older than that…)

If you don’t know what’s going on you can see our previous Crypt Covers here.

UPDATE: We are GO!

3) David Joe and Dan all went to high school together. Dom and Monty (Joe Montague) were found later.
