Poison 13 - Love Me EP. Sub Pop Records. SP 274.

I worked my way backwards into Poison 13 by being a fan of Jack O'Fire, then picking this up as it was a band with Tim Kerr in it. Much like Jack O'Fire, this is an assembly of cover versions, but a very fine assembly of cover versions. I always enjoy hearing covers of Manchester bands by US artists, particularly at the more obscure end of the market, so this cover of Warsaw from the first Joy Division EP, An Ideal For Living, generates the same warmth as Jack O'Fire's assault on The Fall's Container Drivers and Bassholes version of Joy Division's Interzone. Enjoy.
