Splitting the Difference # 8 - Junk Monkeys/John Wesley Harding and the Monks of Doom 7" (1993, Warner Bros)

Had a request for this a couple weeks ago. This is simply a Warner Brothers promo 7" that featured the Junk Monkeys putting their collective stamp on Thin Lizzy's "Cowboy Song." Some noticeable snaps and pops on this one, as was the case with another copy of this single I once listened to. I was feeling so enthusiastic, I also included another Junk Monkeys cover in this very upload, namely "Boys Don't Cry," (The Cure, duh) worth it's weight in gold, every bit as much as the original. This was taken from a radio-only promo CD.

I'm not a fan of either John Wesley Harding (And the Monks of Doom), nor Robert Wyatt, the original scribe of "Moon In June." Typically, this side of the single plays clear as a bell. Beautiful transparent red vinyl too.

Yeah, these "Soil Samples" 45s are on the flimsiest vinyl, aren't they? Explaining the pops and snaps, I'd suppose...
