captain kirk william shatner sings common people joe jackson pulp alan bennett new wave brilliant cover version


This week's single of the month is William Shatner and Joe Jackson covering Pulp's 'Common People'. And yes, it's well classy.


The definitive version, not sung by a Goldsmiths School of Art wanker trying to look like Alan Bennett.

Don't believe me?

Click play and listen to New Wave stalwart Jackson and Captain Kirk turn a flaccid quarter-inch hamster knob into a lady-pleasing veiny monster.

Now!

Wolfgang Bang is a former skate punk who dropped the skateboard but remains reliably enraged by various aspects of modern culture. His oaths and verbal abuse still echo around the fashionable Portobello Road area of West London. His hobbies include long-range outdoor drinking, cooking and modern history. He spends much of his time in a hedge with an air rifle, waiting for the rabbits of mass media to pop out of their burrows and graze on the sweet grass of empty promises.
