Head Like A Hole
Air was a B-side on the Rewind single in Feb 1994. Originally performed by our Wildside labelmates Head Like A Hole. Seeing as we were going to be playing a few live shows with HLAH, someone had the bright idea that we should cover one of HLAH’s songs, and they’d do one of ours. We threw in a few other musical references (NIN) for good measure.
I recall we played this live in Wellington once, our singer introducing it as the Wellington National Anthem. Crowd loved it. HLAH later recorded their version of two of our songs (Hitskin/7 Stripes of the Maumau) and released them on the Spanish Goat Dancer EP. They changed the lyrics a bit, in a rather amusing fashion.
