Our submission for Blues Thursday is Track #7 from Break Cover’s album Unscathed and is Beth Hart’s 2015 song Trouble from her album Better Than Home. This is probably my most favourite song to play live ever. Our version is probably closer to how Ms Hart plays it live than to the studio version and we have certainly been known to get much ruder than is presented here. Normally this is played with guitar and piano but I take Beth Hart’s piano line and play it on the White Falcon. Before mastering the CD the engineer had to take a huge amount of bass out as the White Falcon dominated the track. I still have that version but here is the one that appears on the album. Turn it up loud and enjoy. Happy Blues Thursday and if you get a moment… While you are listening please can I ask you to vote for Break Cover in the Salisbury Music Awards 2018?

Should I Stay or Should I Go at The Wig and Quill in Salisbury. You asked for more Jem - we bring you more Jem. "Should I Stay or Should I Go" is a song by the English punk rock band the Clash, from their album Combat Rock. It was written in 1981 and featured Mick Jones on lead vocals. It became the band's only number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, a decade after it was originally released. In November 2004, it was ranked at 228 on "Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. In 2009 it was ranked 42nd on VH1's program 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. Many rumours have arisen about the song's content, such as Jones' impending dismissal from the Clash or the tempestuous personal relationship between Jones and singer Ellen Foley, but Jones himself says: It wasn't about anybody specific and it wasn't pre-empting my leaving The Clash. It was just a good rockin' song, our attempt at writing a classic ... When we were just playing, that was the kind of thing we used to like to play. – Mick Jones, 1991 More info on Break Cover can be found at https://www.facebook.com/BreakCover and http://www.breakcoverband.com/

Seven Nation Army at The Wig and Quill, Salisbury. Say Hello to Jem our new vocalist!! Seven Nation Army (also stylized as "7 Nation Army") is a song by American rock duo The White Stripes. It was released as the lead single from their fourth studio album, Elephant, in March 2003, and reached number one on the Modern Rock Tracks—maintaining that position for three weeks. It also became the third best-performing song of the decade on the same chart. It was well received commercially as well, and won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. The song is known for its underlying riff, which plays throughout most of the song. Although it sounds like a bass guitar (an instrument the group had never previously used), the sound is actually created by running Jack White's semi-acoustic, 1950s-style Kay Hollowbody guitar through a DigiTech Whammy pedal set down an octave. (we used a bass guitar!) A combination of the song's popularity, recognizable riff, and defiant lyrics led to it becoming the band's signature song. Often ranked as one of the greatest songs of the 2000s, it has been used widely at sporting events and political protests internationally.

Copperhead Road By Steve Earle I have not been hear for a while. Apologies and I miss it terribly. Just to let you know we are all still here and about to enter a new era her is Break Cover's version of Steve Earle's Copperhead Road recorded live at the amazing Music In The Rec Fentival in Durrington. The song's narrator is named John Lee Pettimore III, whose father and grandfather were both active in moonshine making and bootlegging in rural Johnson County, Tennessee. Pettimore's grandfather visited town only rarely, in order to buy supplies for a still he had set up in a hollow along Copperhead Road. Pettimore's father hauled the moonshine to Knoxville each week in an old police cruiser he bought at a surplus auction. According to the narrator, a Revenue Man wanted John Sr. "Real Bad" and went up to get him. The lyric " He never come back from Copperhead Road" implies either the Revenuer was ambushed and killed by John Sr. or John Sr. was killed. John Jr. himself is killed in a fiery car crash while driving to Knoxville with a weekly shipment. Pettimore enlists in the Army on his birthday, believing he will soon be drafted ("They draft the white trash first 'round here anyway"), and serves two tours of duty in Vietnam. Once he returns home, he decides to use the Copperhead Road land to grow marijuana (or something stronger), rather than produce moonshine ("I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico"). Having learned a few tricks from the Viet Cong ("I learned a thing or two from Charlie") while fighting overseas, he resolves not to be caught by the DEA, specifically meaning that he has set up booby traps of the kind employed by the Communist enemy. Copperhead Road was an actual road near Mountain City, Tennessee, although it has since been renamed Copperhead Hollow Road, owing to theft of road signs bearing the song's name. The song also inspired a popular line dance, timed to the same beat, and has been used as the theme music for the Discovery Channel reality series Moonshiners. Hope you like it. Hope to hear you all soon. Best wishes, Simon

Should I Stay Or Should I Go by The Clash Recorded Saturday 8 October 2016 at The Mill in Salisbury and features our new bass player Mr Steve Rance. Steve started playing bass with the Adlibs, the house band at the Adlib Club in London’s Leicester Square. A record ‘Neighbour, Neighbour’ was released and promoted on ‘Ready Steady Go!’, but management problems intervened, and Steve moved on to join JC and the Machine, a London soul band who toured the UK with John Lee Hooker, and provided a backing band for the blues legend. It’s the last week that voting is possible for the Salisbury Music Awards so I shall do a video a day until Friday. A mix of Studio, Live and Gear Demos seems to be the most sensible approach.

Sympathy For The Devil by the Rolling Stones. Covered by Break Cover. "Sympathy for the Devil" is a song by The Rolling Stones, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and credited to Jagger/Richards. Sung by Jagger, the song is an ironic homage to the Devil, written in the first-person narrative from his point of view, recounting atrocities committed throughout the history of humanity. It is performed in a rock arrangement with a samba rhythm. It first appeared as the opening track on their 1968 album Beggars Banquet. Rolling Stone magazine placed it at No. 32 in their list of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In the 2012 documentary Crossfire Hurricane, Jagger stated that his influence for the song came from Baudelaire and from the Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov's novel The Master and Margarita (which had just appeared in English translation in 1967). The book was given to him by Marianne Faithfull. In a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone, Jagger said, "I think that was taken from an old idea of Baudelaire's, I think, but I could be wrong. Sometimes when I look at my Baudelaire books, I can't see it in there. But it was an idea I got from French writing. And I just took a couple of lines and expanded on it. I wrote it as sort of like a Bob Dylan song." It was Richards who suggested changing the tempo and using additional percussion, turning the folk song into a samba. By the time Beggars Banquet was released, the Rolling Stones had already raised some hackles for sexually forward lyrics such as "Let's Spend the Night Together" and for allegedly dabbling in Satanism[4](their previous album, while containing no direct Satanic references in its music or lyrics, was titled Their Satanic Majesties Request), and "Sympathy" brought these concerns to the fore, provoking media rumours and fears among some religious groups that the Stones were devil-worshippers and a corrupting influence on youth. The song may have been spared further controversy when the first single from the album, Street Fighting Man, became even more controversial in view of the race riots and student protests occurring in many cities in Europe and in the United States. In the 2003 book According to the Rolling Stones, Watts said: "'Sympathy' was one of those sort of songs where we tried everything. The first time I ever heard the song was when Mick was playing it at the front door of a house I lived in in Sussex... He played it entirely on his own... and it was fantastic. We had a go at loads of different ways of playing it; in the end I just played a jazz Latin feel in the style of Kenny Clarke would have played on 'A Night in Tunisia' – not the actual rhythm he played, but the same styling." On the overall power of the song, Jagger continued in Rolling Stone: "It has a very hypnotic groove, a samba, which has a tremendous hypnotic power, rather like good dance music. It doesn't speed up or slow down. It keeps this constant groove. Plus, the actual samba rhythm is a great one to sing on, but it is also got some other suggestions in it, an undercurrent of being primitive—because it is a primitive African, South American, Afro-whatever-you-call-that rhythm (candomblé). So to white people, it has a very sinister thing about it. But forgetting the cultural colors, it is a very good vehicle for producing a powerful piece. It becomes less pretentious because it is a very unpretentious groove. If it had been done as a ballad, it wouldn't have been as good." Aftermath[edit] In an interview with Creem, Jagger said, "[When people started taking us as devil worshippers], I thought it was a really odd thing, because it was only one song, after all. It wasn't like it was a whole album, with lots of occult signs on the back. People seemed to embrace the image so readily, [and] it has carried all the way over into heavy metal bands today." Of the change in public perception the band experienced after the song's release, Richards said in a 1971 interview with Rolling Stone, "Before, we were just innocent kids out for a good time, they're saying, 'They're evil, they're evil.' Oh, I'm evil, really? So that makes you start thinking about evil... What is evil? Half of it, I don't know how much people think of Mick as the devil or as just a good rock performer or what? There are black magicians who think we are acting as unknown agents of Lucifer and others who think we are Lucifer. Everybody's Lucifer." Contrary to a widespread misconception, it was "Under My Thumb" and not "Sympathy for the Devil" that the Rolling Stones were performing when Hunter was killed at the Altamont Free Concert.[4] Rolling Stone magazine's early articles on the incident misreported that the killing took place during "Sympathy for the Devil",[9] but the Stones in fact played "Sympathy for the Devil" earlier in the concert; it was interrupted by a fight and restarted, Jagger commenting, "We're always having—something very funny happens when we start that number." Several other songs were performed before Hunter was killed. After being omitted from the Stones' 1972/73 tours, "Sympathy for the Devil" was played occasionally as the encore in 1975/76, and has been performed regularly on all of their tours since 1989. The song has been widely covered since its release. • Sandie Shaw, on her album Reviewing the Situation (1969) • Blood, Sweat & Tears, whose version entitled "Symphony for the Devil" appeared on their third album (1970) • Bryan Ferry on his debut solo album These Foolish Things (1973) • In 2005, Cuban drummer and percussionist Horacio Hernandez ("El Negro") recorded a Latin Jazz version of the song, sung by Latin great Rubén Blades. • Indie rock bands Band of Skulls and John & Jehn covered the song for the French TV show Taratata broadcast in March 2010. • Jane's Addiction covered the song on the debut live album Jane's Addiction a studio version was used for the 5th Season last episode from Sons of Anarchy • 1999 on EP Brighter than the Sun by Tiamat. • The Industrial group Laibach released seven distinct cover versions on the Sympathy for the Devil (EP) • Ozzy Osbourne on his 2005 cover album Under Cover. • The Attack release About Time! Definitive Mod-Pop Collection 1966–68 (2006). • Incubus Succubus covered the song on their 2008 album Science and Nature • Motörhead covered the song for their 2015 album Bad Magic. This version was chosen as one of the official theme songs for Wrestlemania 32.

Sweet Child Of Mine by Guns & Roses covered by Break Cover from the album Unleashed. "Sweet Child o' Mine" is a song by the American rock band Guns N' Roses, featured on their debut studio album, Appetite for Destruction (1987). Released in August 1988 as the album's third single, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the band's first and only number-one single in the U.S. Billboard ranked it as the No. 5 song for 1988. It reached number six on the UK Singles Chart, when re-released in 1989. Lead guitarist Slash has been quoted as having an initial disdain for the song due to its roots as simply a "string skipping" exercise and a joke at the time. During a jam session at the band's house in the Sunset Strip, drummer Steven Adler and Slash were warming up and Slash began to play a "circus" melody while making faces at Adler. Rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin asked Slash to play it again. Stradlin came up with some chords, Duff McKagan created a bassline and Adler planned a beat. In his autobiography, Slash said "within an hour my guitar exercise had become something else". Meanwhile, lead singer Axl Rose was listening to the musicians upstairs in his room and was inspired to write lyrics, which became complete by the following afternoon.He based it on his girlfriend Erin Everly, and declared that Lynyrd Skynyrd served as an inspiration "to make sure that we'd got that heartfelt feeling. On the next composing session in Burbank, the band added both a bridge and a guitar solo. While the band was recording demos with producer Spencer Proffer, he suggested adding a breakdown at the song's end. The musicians agreed, but were not sure what to do. Listening to the demo in a loop, Axl started saying to himself, "Where do we go? Where do we go now?" and Proffer suggested that he sing that. We have subsequently dropped the song from our set because it’s too slow for people to dance to and after the intro and chorus, no one knows the words! So here’s one of only 3 performances of this song we’ve ever done. Hope you enjoy. More info on the band here: https://www.facebook.com/BreakCover/ and here http://www.breakcoverband.com/

Hi all and first an apology for not posting anything here or indeed being on Fando for ages and sadly that continues to be the case. This is my friend and colleague from Break Cover with his entry to the Jim Oblon Video Challenge. Playing his Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top Pro in Blue which goes pretty much every where with him. This is the message from Terry "So I recorded this video for an Epiphone competition, but the winner is reliant on other people ticking the big thumbs up icon next to my video. Here is the video -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnZuqQh5tEM and if you could head over to http://www.epiphone.com/News/Features/Contests/2015/Jim-Oblon/Video-Challenge-Vote.aspx and slap a big tick against my entry, it'd be most appreciated. The page does say you can vote once a day (up to the end of May!)... Thank you!" If you get a chance to vote that would be great thank you!

12 Months with Break Cover. (You may want to grab a cup of coffee and take a break for this one. It's not short) With the Salisbury Music Awards come around again it got us thinking about everything we have done in the last 12 months. You can still vote for us as Best Cover Band 2014 until midnight on 24 October 2014 here http://www.intrepidred.co.uk/register/ In the last 12 months we have: a new bass player – Ray Franklin (depped twice by Mike Clipson and Chris Wynn), a new person out front – Lou Wakeham a new soundman – Ken Jones a new (dep) guitarist – Colin Gray recorded a great demo to show prospective venues what we can do. Get a free copy here www.breakcoverband.com/unbreakable.zip If that wasn’t enough, we’ve played dozens of gigs including some outdoor festival types where we were the last band of the day. (We like to think we were the Headliners!) That got us to thinking “If only there was a way to tell that story” So, here is some of that story… Thank you all so much for your support in the last 12 months. Remember if you are having half as much fun as we are, then we are having twice as much fun as you are!

Massive thank you to Pat Clarke for tickling Dear Old Dickie into doing a promo video for our Salisbury Music Awards Best Covers Band 2014 nomination. This is all Pat's work and I strongly urge you to check out his amazing comedy/harp/vocal/songwriting/performanceskills on display at his Fando page here http://fandalism.com/thefatmouth The rest of this blurb is trying to persuade you to vote for Break Cover... WE NEED YOUR VOTES! http://www.intrepidred.co.uk/register/ Last year we were surprised and amazed to be nominated in the Best Covers Act category at the Salisbury Music Awards. Salisbury has an amazing, vibrant and long standing music scene with some great venues and some amazing acts so to just get nominated was unbelievable. Even more wonderfully, with your help and support, we came in as the runners up beating some seriously talented and well established acts. This year, we are delighted that Salisbury Music Awards 2014 have again nominated Break Cover in the Best Covers Band category. For us, this year, this is such good news because in the last 12 months we have transformed into a better, stronger band. We now have the supremely talented Louise Wakeham out front as well the amazingly funky and versatile talent of Ray Franklin on bass. We also have an all new sound system and a new sound engineer to look after what the audience hears. The last 12 months have been a roller coaster for us as parting with old members was not easy but the end result is a much better band. . And that’s where you come in. We, Break Cover, need your help. Everyone here was amazing last year and we need you to work your magic again this year please. It will take you the time it takes to hear this song, no longer and you would be doing us a huge favour. Thank you so much. This is important to us as the local music venues recognise the Salisbury Music Awards and being nominated is fantastic but being in the top three turns into tangible gigs. We get to use the logo on our marketing material and we are taken seriously when going into new venues. As you have seen from the posts this year we are a live band, what we do is about playing live and doing well at these Awards help us do that. Please, please, please take 2 minutes to go here http://www.intrepidred.co.uk/register/ and vote for us. Thank you so much for your continued support.

Break Cover performing The Clash’s Should I Stay Or Should I Go @ The Old Ale House August 2014 Before we get to the song info… We, Break Cover, are hoping to hear some news today Wednesday 1 October. If we do then we are going to need your help. Now I know its bad form to ask for stuff on these pages but you lot were amazing last year and we may need you to work your magic again this year. Fingers crossed and keep you posted later today if we can. The song was written in 1981 and featured Mick Jones on lead vocals. It became the band's only number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, a decade after it was originally released. In November 2004, it was ranked at 228 on Rolling Stones "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. In 2009 it was ranked 42nd on VH1's program 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. Many rumours have arisen about the song's content, such as Jones' impending dismissal from The Clash or the rocky personal relationship between Jones and singer Ellen Foley, but Jones himself says “it wasn't about anybody specific and it wasn't pre-empting my leaving The Clash. It was just a good rockin' song, our attempt at writing a classic... When we were just playing, that was the kind of thing we used to like to play.” - Mick Jones, 1991 The song is featured in the trailer for You, Me and Dupree and Rugrats Go Wild, where it was featured on its soundtrack. The live version of the song was also featured in the opening credits for the film 28 Days. The song's opening guitar riff was used in One Direction's 2012 hit single, "Live While We're Young", which caused controversy.

"She Sells Sanctuary" by The Cult performed by Break Cover at The Wilton Beer Festival 2014. Before we get to the song info… We, Break Cover, are hoping to hear some news on Wednesday 1 October. If we do then we are going to need your help. Now I know it’s bad form to ask for stuff on these pages but you lot were amazing last year and we need you to work your magic again this year. Fingers crossed… This song is from the Cult’s 1985 album Love and was released as a single in May of that year, peaking at no.15 in the UK Singles Chart. The band has released various versions of the song. Aside from the original 7" single, three other versions had been released around the same time on 12" formats: "The Long Version", "The Howling Mix" and "Assault on Sanctuary". In 1993, several more mixes were released on two different CD singles, each called Sanctuary MCMXCIII (Volumes 1 & 2). The "Sundance" remix was remixed by Butch Vig who previously had produced Nirvana's Nevermind Album. The "Dog Star Rising" remix was remixed by Youth who has produced The Cult's eighth album, Born into This. "She Sells Sanctuary" was the last song to be recorded with The Cult's drummer, Nigel Preston, who was fired from the band shortly after its release. In 2009, two more previously unreleased versions, a demo and the "Olympic Rough Mix" were included in a 4-disc box set of the Omnibus Edition of Love. In the mid 80’s I made many trips to Greece and The Howling Mix of this song was very much a soundtrack of that time and this song always takes me back there. We removed the song from the set after this gig as we just didn’t think we were delivering it with the power and accuracy it deserves. Many people have tried to persuade us otherwise but we just don’t get the feeling for this that the song deserves. I know it’s impossible to be 100% happy with every song but there are so many songs out there we could play we have elected to drop this in favour of something which we can do more justice to. Please enjoy its last outing.

AC/DC’s "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)” Break Cover’s performance at the Wilton Beer Festival August 2014 PLAY LOUD! I posted the description below when I posted the studio version so if you’ve already read it; feel free to skip! This is the first track of AC/DC’s album T.N.T., released in December 1975, and was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. Musically, the song is notable for combining bagpipes with hard rock guitars, drums, and bass guitar; in the mid-part of the song there is a call and response between the bagpipes and the lead guitar. Sadly as Break Cover are without bagpipes we have done this with guitars as best we can. It is recorded in B-flat major, but played live in A major. Personally, I think the recording is a result of playback tapes running at different speeds as it is not a true Bb. I suspect they recorded it in A at one studio and mastered it in another studio which had a different tape machine. Makes it a tricky song to play along with unless you can change the pitch. A slightly shorter version of the song is also the first track on the international version of High Voltage, released in May 1976. This is on the original release and the 2003 remastered CD release of the album only. Other CD releases have the full version. This song is also on the Volts CD of the Bonfire box set, released in 1997. This was a signature song for Scott and current AC/DC lead vocalist Brian Johnson does not perform it, out of respect for his predecessor. George Young, having heard that Scott was in a pipe band, encouraged the use of the bagpipes in the song and Scott obliged though having never played them before; eventually managing to squeeze a tune out of them. In fact Scott was a side drummer for the pipe band and had no previous experience with the bagpipes. Scott played the bagpipes live until in 1976 he set the bagpipes down at the corner of a stage and they were destroyed by fans. The band reverted to a tape in subsequent live performances. The song has the band chronicle being on tour, in particular the hardships of doing so, including being robbed, assaulted, stoned, having to stay in a series of hotels, and being cheated by a greedy agent. The band, however, accepts these hardships as natural on the path to stardom, telling the listener in the refrain that "It's a long way to the top/If you wanna rock 'n' roll".

The Spencer Davis Group’s "Gimme Some Lovin'" performed by Break Cover at The Bear Inn Wilton Beer Festival using an Electro Harmonix B9 Organ Machine to convert one of the electric guitars to the sound of the original B3 organ. The song was written by Steve Winwood, Spencer Davis and Muff Winwood, although solely credited to "Stevie Winwood" on the UK single label. The basic riff of the song was borrowed from the Homer Banks song "(Ain't That) A Lot of Love", written by Banks and Willie Dean "Deanie" Parker. "Gimme Some Lovin'" was a UK #2 in the Autumn of 1966 and a US #7. The song is ranked #247 on theRolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The version issued in the UK (and probably most of Europe) is different from that issued in the US on the United Artistslabel, being slower, and lacking backing vocals, some percussion, and the "live sounding" performance found on the US single. (The US version has more often been used on reissue CDs, even those coming from Europe.) The single features the sound of the Hammond B-3 organ.

Bryan Adam’s Summer Of ’69 performed by Break Cover at The Wilton Bear Inn Beer Festival August 2014. A wonderfully rough and ready version of Summer Of ’69. The song was written by Adams and Jim Vallance, a long-time writing partner of Adams. "Summer of '69" was produced by Adams and Bob Clearmountain. It was released in June 1985 under A&M Records as the fourth single from Reckless. The song was released with two B-side tracks; "Kids Wanna Rock" and "The Best Was Yet to Come", which had previously appeared on the albums Reckless and Cuts Like A Knife respectively. "Summer of '69" received favourable reviews from music critics. The single had a strong effect on music charts internationally, with its highest peak being number four in the Netherlands, and its least successful charting country being Germany. The track was promoted with a music video, which was filmed by Steve Barron. The video features Adams and his backing band in a variety of settings, including running from the police. After a tour supporting his album Cuts Like a Knife, he immediately started the recording sessions for the new album,Reckless. "Summer of '69" was finished on January 25, 1984, co-written with Jim Vallance in his basement studio. The song went through a number of changes because neither Adams nor Vallance was convinced it was a strong enough song to be featured on the album. In their first draft, the lyric "summer of '69" appeared only once. At that time the two were planning to title it "Best Days of My Life" instead. While this lyric, "best days of my life", appeared seven times in the first draft, on the final draft it had been replaced by "summer of '69" and only appeared twice throughout the song. When writing the lyrics, "Jimmy quit and Jody got married" Vallance suggested using, "Woody quit and Gordy got married", referring to members of his high school band, but Adams liked his version better. Adams mentioned once in an interview that it was a reference to one of his early drummers. "Jody" is a reference to Adams' sound-manager, Jody Perpick, who got married during the album's recording season. On the song's very first demo, it started with a 12-string riff, just like the breakdown section in the middle of the song, but they replaced it with a chunky 6-string intro on the second demo. The song was recorded three to four times, in different ways, with both Adams and Vallance still not convinced that it was finished. When Adams appeared on The Early Show in 2008, he was asked about "Summer of '69" and its lyrical meaning. Adams said the song was about sex and making love in the summertime. "69" is a reference to the sexual position, 69! On the Reckless 25th anniversary, Adams told In the Studio that the song was built on the theme of nostalgia, such as the "cultural revolution", the break-up of The Beatles, his discovery of music and the moon landing, but also about a character who plays until his fingers bleed and sexual discovery. Vallance however has gone for the more conventional interpretation of the title being a reference to a year. He notes Jackson Browne's "Running on Empty", which contains references to 1965 and 1969, as his own influence, and recalls Adams citing the film Summer of '42 as his. "That song is 25 years old now so it's had that many years to incubate. A lot of songs, like that one, hit big in America but really not anywhere else. It didn't chart anywhere in Europe until at least 10 years after it was released. [...] I think songs can have a life of their own regardless of the promotion."

Yours Truly, Jack The Ripper – The Rock Musical. Rehearsal footage August 2014 I am extremely pleased to be a part of this, my first musical. A great bunch of people doing some amazing songs with a thrilling narrative. Lots of the songs in the attached clips – breathtaking singers too. “Yours Truly Jack The Ripper” is a spelling-binding recreation of London’s darkest, cruellest most notorious ex-resident, an enchanting fusion of Rock Opera, ensemble physical theatre, and eerie historical fact. Long before Damian, Freddy, and Hannibal Lector, a real life monster lurked unhindered in the shadow of Whitechapel. This acclaimed show was last performed back in 2008, we are proud to announce that “Jack is Back”. This time, on stage performances not just by the cast but also with live rock keyboards and guitar! Our first performance will be on November 8th at the Chapel Salisbury for the “Jack The Ripper Conference” hosted by the Whitechapel Society. There will then be three public performances at the Chapel Salisbury on November 13th, 14th & 15th. Apologies for the first post not working More info on the website: http://yourstrulyjacktheripper.wordpress.com/

Jumping Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones. Performed by Break Cover. Recorded at the Old Ale House in Salisbury in August 2014. On the far right is Colin Gray who is stepping in for our regular guitarist Terry Taylor and this was his first gig with the band. For more info on Break Cover please like us at https://www.facebook.com/BreakCover Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a song by The Rolling Stones, released as a single in 1968. Called "supernatural Delta blues by way of Swinging London" by Rolling Stone, the song was perceived by some as the band's return to their blues roots after the psychedelia of their preceding albums Aftermath, Between the Buttons, Flowers and Their Satanic Majesties Request. One of the group's most popular and recognizable songs, it has featured in films and been covered by numerous performers, notably Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and Johnny Winter. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, recording on "Jumpin' Jack Flash" began during the Beggars Banquet sessions of 1968. Regarding the song's distinctive sound, guitarist Richards has said: I used a Gibson Hummingbird acoustic tuned to open D, six string. Open D or open E, which is the same thing – same intervals – but it would be slackened down some for D. Then there was a capo on it, to get that really tight sound. And there was another guitar over the top of that, but tuned to Nashville tuning. I learned that from somebody in George Jones' band in San Antonio in 1964. The high-strung guitar was an acoustic, too. Both acoustics were put through a Philips cassette recorder. Just jam the mic right in the guitar and play it back through an extension speaker. Richards has stated that he and Jagger wrote the lyrics while staying at Richards' country house, where they were awoken one morning by the sound of gardener Jack Dyer walking past the window. When Jagger asked what the noise was, Richards responded: "Oh, that's Jack – that's jumpin' Jack." The rest of the lyrics evolved from there. Humanities scholar Camille Paglia speculated that the song's lyrics might have been partly inspired by William Blake's poem "The Mental Traveller": "She binds iron thorns around his head / And pierces both his hands and feet / And cuts his heart out of his side / To make it feel both cold & heat." Jagger said in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone that the song arose "out of all the acid of Satanic Majesties. It's about having a hard time and getting out. Just a metaphor for getting out of all the acid things." And in a 1968 interview, Brian Jones described it as "getting back to ... the funky, essential essence" following the psychedelia of Their Satanic Majesties Request In his autobiography, Stone Alone, Bill Wyman has claimed that he came up with the song's distinctive main guitar riff on an organ without being credited for it. Released on 24 May 1968, "Jumpin' Jack Flash" (backed with "Child of the Moon") reached the top of the UK Singles Chart and peaked at number three in the United States. Some early London Records US pressings of the single had a technical flaw in them: about halfway through the song's instrumental bridge, the speed of the master tape slows down for a moment, then comes back to speed. The first Rolling Stones album on which the song appeared was their 1969 compilation album, Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2), one year after the single was released. Since then, it has appeared on numerous Stones compilations, including Hot Rocks 1964–1971 (1971), 30 Greatest Hits (1977), Singles Collection: The London Years (1989), Forty Licks (2002), and GRRR! (2012). The Rolling Stones have played "Jumpin' Jack Flash" during every tour since its release. It ranks as the song the band has played in concert most frequently, and has appeared on the concert albums Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!, Love You Live, Flashpoint, Shine a Light, and Sweet Summer Sun: Hyde Park Live, as well as, notably, The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus (featuring the only released live performance of the song with Brian Jones). Jones is heard clearly, mixing with Richards' lead throughout the song. The intro is not usually played in concert and instead the song begins with the main riff. The open E or open D tuning of the rhythm guitar on the studio recording has also not been replicated in concert (with the possible exception of the 1968 NME awards show, no recording of which has ever surfaced). In the performance filmed for The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus in December 1968, Richards used standard tuning; and ever since the band's appearance at Hyde Park on 5 July 1969, he has played it in open G tuning with a capo on the fourth fret. In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Jumpin' Jack Flash" at number 2 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. In 2004, Rolling Stone rated the song 124th on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. VH1 placed it at 65 on its show 100 Greatest Rock Songs.

"Chelsea Dagger" by Scottish rock band The Fratellis. It was released on 28 August 2006 and taken from their debut album Costello Music, which was released in the UK on 11 September 2006. It is supposed to be named after both Jon Fratelli's wife Heather, a burlesque dancer whose stage name – Chelsea – he borrowed for the song, and also as a play on the name of pop singer Britney Spears This song was Number 77 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007. The use of the term Dagger originates from the Scottish for a person of loose morals and the song is about a high class prostitute in the Chelsea area of London. "Chelsea Dagger" is the goal song of the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks. The song was first used after owner Rocky Wirtz inherited the team from his father, Bill, and introduced more up-tempo music in an effort to attract younger fans. The song became a sensation during the Blackhawks' run to their first Stanley Cup in 49 years, in 2010. The success of the Blackhawks has led "Chelsea Dagger" to be adopted as a goal song by the University of North Dakota, among others. This is Break Cover’s version and was played for the first time at The Bear Inn Beer Festival, Wilton in August 2014. It is recorded on an audience member’s mobile phone and the sound and audio quality are rubbish. However, it gets the impact of the song across very well. It is also the first song where Bass player Ray takes on lead vocal duties. I have been away for a couple of weeks and thought I would share this with you as I start getting myself back up to speed. We hope you enjoy this as much as we all did and feel free to follow us on Facebook for all the latest info https://www.facebook.com/BreakCover

'Keep On Running' by Jackie Davis and made famous by The Spencer Davis Group. Break Cover at The Old Ale House, Salisbury. August 2014. "Keep on Running" was written by Jamaican singer-songwriter Jackie Edwards, who as well as having a successful singing career, was working in the UK for Island Records as a songwriter. The song was recorded by Edwards for his 1965 album Come on Home, and he recorded it again in the mid-1970s for his Do You Believe In Love album. It was also a UK hit for John Alford in 1996, released as a double A-side with "If", and peaking at number 24. "Keep on Running" has also been recorded by several other artists including Robben Ford (as the title track of his 2003 album), and The Romantics (on Live on Stage). The song was most successfully recorded by The Spencer Davis Group and released as a single in November 1965 on Fontana Records, backed with "High Time Baby". At the time, Chris Blackwell, who produced the recording, was trying to get his Island label established in the UK and was managing the Spencer Davis Group. He was lent funding from Scala Brown Associates for the single by offering a sizable share of his label as security; The success of the single meant that he was quickly able to repay the loan. It was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart in January 1966. In the United States it reached number 76. This version was included in the soundtrack of the 1988 film Buster and was used during the film's opening sequence that saw "Buster Edwards" (Phil Collins) steal a suit from a shop window for a friend's funeral. The song was included on the CD, cassette and vinyl formats of the soundtrack. The song was also included in the 2007 romantic comedy Run Fatboy Run directed by David Schwimmer.

With respect to Mr Rick Parfitt who, only because he is being told to, is missing his first show since 1967 this weekend. Break Cover perform Paper Plane by Status Quo. "Paper Plane" is a rock song originally by Status Quo released as a single in 1972 (reaching number 8 in the charts) and on their album Piledriver. The song was written by Francis Rossi and Bob Young and was one of Status Quo's first successes in their new heavier musical direction. It has more recently been covered by Persephone's Bees whose influence we have used. Status Quo were/are huge here in the UK not so well known in the US - Google them if you don't know them.

Break Cover perform "Tainted Love" at Durrington's Music In The Rec. "Tainted Love" is a song composed by Ed Cobb, formerly of American group The Four Preps, which was originally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964. It attained worldwide fame after being covered by Soft Cell in 1981 and has since been covered by numerous groups and artists. This version is perhaps most closely related to the recent Imelda May version. Gloria Jones recorded the original version of "Tainted Love". It was the B-side to the 1965 single "My Bad Boy's Comin' Home", which was a commercial flop, failing to chart in either the US or the UK. Before Jones recorded the song, Cobb had offered it to The Standells, which he managed and produced, but they rejected it. However, in 1973, British club DJ Richard Searling purchased a copy of the almost decade-old single while on a trip to the United States. The track's Motown-influenced sound (featuring a fast tempo, horns, electric rhythm guitar and female backing vocals) fit in perfectly with the music favoured by those involved in the UK's Northern Soul club scene of the early 1970s, and Searling popularised the song at the Northern Soul club Va Va’s in Bolton, and later, at Wigan Casino. Due to the newfound underground popularity of the song, Jones re-recorded "Tainted Love" in 1976[7] and released it as a single, but this version also failed to chart.

"One Way or Another" by Blondie from the album Parallel Lines. Covered by Break Cover at the Old Ale House Salisbury, August 2014. The song was originally released as the fourth single in the US and Canada as the follow-up to the no. 1 hit "Heart of Glass". "One Way or Another" reached no. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and no. 7 on the RPM 100 Singles. Written by Debbie Harry and Nigel Harrison for the band's third studio album, Parallel Lines (1978), the song was inspired by one of Harry's ex-boyfriends who stalked her after their break up. The song was included on the US and Canadian versions of the band's first hits compilation, The Best of Blondie (1981), as it was released as a single there, but not on the international releases. Although never officially released as a single in the United Kingdom, the song charted there in February 2013 due to success of One Direction's cover/mashup "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)". Blondie released a manipulated live version of the song (with the audience noise removed) as the theme for the 1999 US television series Snoops. This version was released in the US as a bonus track on the Live live album. The original un-edited live version was later included on the European edition of Live, which was re-titled Livid, instead of the manipulated one. Rolling Stone ranked the song #298 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. This is fresh of the press as only performed this on Saturday. Note the addition of new guitarist Colin to my left as Terry our usual guy is away for 4 months with work. Also note the use of a Gibson Les Paul - this is her debut gig and she did very well indeed. Althuogh her player may have made a mistake or tow during the song, the guitar was faultless!

ZZ Top's Sharp Dressed Man. I wasn't going to share these on Fando as they are not all the best quality but I figured that's just the way these fall. I've not posted this one before. Relatively new to the set and we opened with this on the day which is why I am faffing about with my amp for the first few bars. recorded live at Music In The Rec Durrington July 2014 "Sharp Dressed Man" is a song performed by ZZ Top from their album Eliminator released in 1983. The song was produced by band manager Bill Ham, and recorded and mixed by Terry Manning. Pre-production recording engineer Linden Hudson was very involved in the early stages of this song's production. At 2007's VH1 Rock Honors, Nickelback covered the song as a tribute (Billy Gibbons had earlier made a guest appearance on Nickelback's own song "Rockstar"). ZZ Top played this song at halftime of the 2008 FedEx Orange Bowl. The song is currently used as the opening theme for A&E's Duck Dynasty.

"Should I Stay or Should I Go" by the English punk rock band The Clash, from their album Combat Rock. The tenth and final song from Break Cover’s Unbreakable album! This is it folks - last one for a while so please enjoy! The song was written in 1981 and featured Mick Jones on lead vocals. It became the band's only number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, a decade after it was originally released. In November 2004, it was ranked at 228 on Rolling Stones "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. In 2009 it was ranked 42nd on VH1's program 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. Many rumours have arisen about the song's content, such as Jones' impending dismissal from The Clash or the rocky personal relationship between Jones and singer Ellen Foley, but Jones himself says “it wasn't about anybody specific and it wasn't pre-empting my leaving The Clash. It was just a good rockin' song, our attempt at writing a classic... When we were just playing, that was the kind of thing we used to like to play.” - Mick Jones, 1991 The song is featured in the trailer for You, Me and Dupree and Rugrats Go Wild, where it was featured on its soundtrack. The live version of the song was also featured in the opening credits for the film 28 Days. The song's opening guitar riff was used in One Direction's 2012 hit single, "Live While We're Young", which caused controversy. This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK. Break Cover are: Louise Wakeham – Vocals & Backing Vocals Craig Butler – Drums, Vocals & Backing Vocals Ray Franklin – Bass & Backing Vocals Terry Taylor – Guitars & Backing Vocals Simon Dickenson – Guitars & Backing Vocals Thanks for listening please join us on Facebook for live dates and more recorded songs soon… www.facebook.com/breakcover www.breakcoverband.com

"Locked Out of Heaven" - This one is a bit special and can I ask that you stay to the end as whilst it is famous as a pop song we have tried to make this as ROCK as possible including some fun guitar stuff at the end! Song #9 from Break Cover’s Unbreakable album this is by Bruno Mars from his second studio album, Unorthodox Jukebox (2012). It was released as the lead single from the album on October 1, 2012 and serviced to mainstream radio in the United States by Atlantic Records on the same date. The song was written by Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine, and produced by Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, Emile Haynie and The Smeezingtons. "Locked Out of Heaven" is a new wave, funk and reggae rock song. The song's lyrics are about the rapturous feelings brought about by a relationship infused with positive emotion as well as good sex. "Locked Out of Heaven" was well received by most critics, some of whom complimented Mars' different musical direction, his vocals were praised, being called "smooth" and "sweet," while its sound was lauded, with the song being called "interesting" and a "musical evolution". While others music critics noted the song influences by a number of bands, with The Police being most cited, Mars admitted that he was influenced by the band to write the song. The single charted inside the top-ten in over twenty countries, including the United States, where it became Mars' third number one single on the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent six consecutive weeks and topped the Canadian Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks. "Locked Out of Heaven" was certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA). The song's music video was shot by director Cameron Duddy and by Mars, in which Mars is seen amusing with his bandmates by doing things like smoking, drinking beer and playing games. The singer performed "Locked Out of Heaven" on television shows such as Saturday Night Live and The X Factor and included it on The Moonshine Jungle Tour and at his Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show set lists. The song won several awards and received three Grammy nominations. The song has been covered by various recording artists, including Leona Lewis and Bastille. This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK.

Tina Turner's "Nutbush City Limits" This song #8 from the album Unbreakable by Break Cover. "Nutbush City Limits" is a semi-autobiographical funk and soul song written and originally performed by Tina Turner in which she commemorates her rural hometown of Nutbush, Tennessee. Released June 1973, shortly before her separation from then-husband and musical partner Ike Turner, "Nutbush City Limits" was the last hit single the duo would produce together. In the years since, "Nutbush City Limits" has been covered by a number of other artists—most notably Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band—and Tina Turner herself has re-recorded several different versions of the song. As an unincorporated rural community, Nutbush does not officially have "city limits"; rather, its boundaries are described by "Nutbush—Unincorporated" signs posted on the local highway (19). The first recording of "Nutbush City Limits" was produced by Ike Turner at his Inglewood, California facility, Bolic Sound Studio, in May 1973 and released as a single the following month by the couple under their professional name, Ike & Tina Turner. Though Ike composed the music, he did not list his name in the credits alongside Tina, who wrote the lyrics. The song later appeared on their album of the same title, released November 1973, and proved to be the duo's final significant chart hit, reaching #11 on Billboard Hot Soul Singles, #22 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #4 on the UK Singles Chart. Following the couple's split, the song became a staple of Tina's live show where she reworked the funky studio version into a hard-driving rock and roll showstopper. Typical of the period, none of the session musicians who contributed to "Nutbush City Limits" were given specific mention in the song credits. It has been rumored for years that Marc Bolan, frontman for the glam rock band T. Rex, played guitar on the track. Gloria Jones, his girlfriend at the time—who herself provided backing vocals for Ike & Tina Turner during the 1960s—asserted that this was the case in the 2007 BBC4 documentary Marc Bolan: The Final Word.] This claim is bolstered by the fact that Bolan toured the U.S. extensively and resided in the Los Angeles area during the mid-1970s, and is also acknowledged to have played on the Ike & Tina Turner singles "Sexy Ida (Part 2)" and "Baby—Get It On". However, a 2008 Ebony magazine article about Ike Turner's death identified James "Bino" Lewis, then a member of Ike & Tina's backing band Kings of Rhythm, as the guitarist. Most recently a version appeared on the Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa album 'Seesaw' and Break Cover's version probably owes as much to this version as the original This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK.

ZZ Top's "La Grange" This is the seventh song from the album Unbreakable by Break Cover. "La Grange" is a song by the American rock group ZZ Top from their album Tres Hombres, released in 1973. One of their most successful songs, it was released in 1973 and received extensive radio play, rising to number 41 on theBillboard Hot 100 in 1974. The song refers to a brothel on the outskirts of La Grange, Texas (later called the "Chicken Ranch"). This brothel is also the subject of the Broadway play and film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the latter starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds. In March 2005, Q magazine placed "La Grange" at 92nd of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. The song is also ranked number 74 on Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time". Rolling Stone called the song "a standard for guitarists to show off their chops". Billy Gibbons played the lead on a 1955 Stratocaster with a stop tailpiece through a Marshall Super Lead 100 with Celestion greenback speakers. The song was produced by Bill Ham, and mixed by Terry Manning. The initial groove of the song is based on a traditional boogie blues rhythm used by John Lee Hooker in his "Boogie Chillen'" and Slim Harpo's "Shake Your Hips". A failed lawsuit by the copyright holder of Boogie Chillen' resulted in the court ruling that the rhythm was in the public domain. This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK.

John Fogerty & Tina Turner "Proud Mary" This is the sixth song from the album Unbreakable by Break Cover. Written by American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Fogerty, and recorded by his band Creedence Clearwater Revival. The song was released as a single from the band's second studio album, Bayou Country, both released by Fantasy Records in January 1969 (although another reference related to album liner notes says just before Christmas, which would imply December 1968). The song became a hit in the United States, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1969, the first of five non-consecutive singles to peak at #2 for the group. In a 1969 interview, Fogerty said that he wrote it in the two days after he was discharged from the National Guard. In the liner notes for the 2008 expanded reissue of Bayou Country, Joel Selvin explained that the songs for the album started when John Fogerty was in the National Guard, that the riffs for "Proud Mary," "Born on the Bayou," and "Keep on Chooglin'" were conceived by Fogerty at a concert in the Avalon Ballroom, and "Proud Mary" was arranged from parts of different songs, one of which was about a "washerwoman named Mary." The line "Left a good job in the city" was written following Fogerty's discharge from the National Guard, and the line "rollin' on the river" was from a movie by Will Rogers. In the Macintosh program "Garage Band," Mr Fogerty explained that he liked Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, and wanted to open a song with a similar intro, informing the way "Proud Mary" opens with the repeated C chord to A chord. Tina Turner first covered "Proud Mary" in 1970 with her husband at the time, Ike Turner. The Ike & Tina Turner version was released as a single from their Workin' Together album and the song differed greatly from the structure of the original, but is also well known and has become one of Tina's most recognizable signature songs. The Turners' version was substantially rearranged by Soko Richardson and Ike Turner. The song started off with a slow, sultry tone in which Tina introduced the song and warned them that they were gonna start it off "nice and easy" as "we never do nothing nice and easy" but said they would finish it "nice and rough". After the lyrics are first sung softly by the Turners, the song is then turned into a funk rock vamp with Turner and assorted background singers delivering soulful vocals. It reached #4 on the pop charts on March 27, 1971, two years to the week after Creedence Clearwater Revival's version was at its peak, and won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Group in 1972. Following the original version's release and its success, Ike and Tina included the song in their live act and first performed a version of the song on The Ed Sullivan Show. It's also performed in the years 1971 (the year of the Turners' version's release) and 1974. The film's dramatization of that scene and Ike Turner's descent into cocaine abuse was set up to dramatize the public's adulation of Tina Turner much to Ike's chagrin. In 1988, a live solo version was included on the album Tina Live in Europe. Tina Turner later re-recorded the song in the studio for the biopic's 1993 soundtrack album of the same name. This version was released as a promotional single issued to radio stations and DJs. Tina's solo version was later included on her 2004 greatest hits album All the Best. After a contestant's performance of the song on The X Factor in 2010, this version entered the UK Singles Chart at #62. Another live version was released in 2009 on the Tina Live album. It was recorded on March 21, 2009 in Arnhem,Netherlands as part of Turner's 50th Anniversary Tour. The song has now become a staple in all of Tina's live shows, including live duet versions with Beyoncé and Cher. Break Cover's version owes much to a combination of CCR's and Tina Turner's versions combined! This version was recorded in a 16 hour session by Break Cover at Sound on Sound Studios in Southampton, UK. Break Cover are: Louise Wakeham -- Vocals & Backing Vocals Craig Butler -- Drums, Vocals & Backing Vocals Ray Franklin -- Bass & Backing Vocals Terry Taylor -- Guitars & Backing Vocals Simon Dickenson -- Guitars & Backing Vocals www.facebook.com/breakcover www.breakcoverband.com
