One of my friends and I were having an alcohol-fuelled conversation about cover bands and how their only objective (usually) is to play their chosen artists music in the exact same way.

Then we came up with 'alternative cover bands'.

Imagine this, you want to start a cover band to tribute the music of say, I don't know, Opeth.

You learn all of their songs but play them at half speed.

You have formed 'Slowpeth'.

Like Tool? How about playing their songs using hammers, saws, screwdrivers, monkey wrenches etc.

Oh yeah... you're in 'Tools'!

Love Angus Young and AC/DC but can't finish one of their songs without shouting or getting distracted?

Hello 'AD/HD'

What 'Alternative Cover Band' would you be in? And what would be your catch?

I'd be in the Food Fighters, and we would throw food at our fans.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

I'm trying to think of some witty ones but I can't.

At this point I'd be more surprised if you found me a Christian children's entertainer that didn't sodomize and eat kids.

You and a few mates chilling out in Soviet Russia. Couple of litres of vodka, few beers, acoustic guitars... It's not a Bloc Party. It's a Bloc Gathering.
