When is a cover song better than the original? Only you can decide. This week Tripping Daisy takes on Public Image Ltd.’s “Rise.” MAGNET’s Edward Fairchild pulls the pin. Take cover!
Public Image Ltd. is back. After an 18-year hiatus, Johnny Rotten—sorry, John Lydon—has reunited the band and is kicking off an extensive North American tour this week with a show in Los Angeles before performing at the Coachella Festival over the weekend. Look for me at both shows. The band’s biggest hit was “Rise,” which featured Steve Vai on guitar. Here is Tripping Daisy, a band I saw more than a few times in Oklahoma during the ’90s, with its psychedelic spin on the number, from the Time Capsule EP.
