Buffalo Tom frontman Bill Janovitz wants to record a cover song every week and make each tune available to fans for free via his blog. (Sure, not as fun as a free beer-of-the-month club, but in this economy, we’ll take what we can get.) The first entry in the series is the Replacements’ “Little Mascara,” a great track from 1985’s Tim, MAGNET’s somewhat controversial pick for the best Mats album of all time. (You can download Bill’s version here.) Janovitz also covered Tom Waits’ “Johnsburg, Illinois” (from 1983’s Swordfishtrombones, another MAGNET fave), which you can download here.
