David Piscopo Not easy to do Rough Trade covers as Pope's voice was such a strong factor within each song. The "cream my jeans" line is a great example of what I mean. Her vocal identity is so in front of each song. Saying all that, I like this version by Expanda Fuzz, defintely in their own style and it works. Thanks!

This is our cover of the iconic Rough Trade song "High School Confidential".

We covered this as part of the Canada Day 2016 compilation on Centretown Recording Alliance, which celebrates classic Canadian songs:

Meltingplastic’s artwork for the track pays tribute to Carole Pope‘s lyrics during the song when she compares her fixation to 50s bombshells, including Mamie Van Doren! (www.meltingplastic.com)
