“DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE COVERBAND”

LINEAR NOTES

All tracks on this CD were recorded by Talking Heads fans from all around the world as a tribute to the band and its former members. Of course a cover version is never as good as the original (at least, that's what the reviewers say), but by refusing Famous People with Really Big Names to submit songs (sorry Tom Jones), we can at least guarantee a certain level of originality. All artists featured here contributed their recordings for free, and for this reason you should support them by purchasing their music.
The whole idea originated back in 1996 when I contributed some time and a J-card to a tribute cassette for the Dutch band The Nits. I thought it would be nice to do a similar project for Talking Heads, and I asked people on my talking-heads.net website and the TH mailing list to record their favorite songs and send them to me. Good intentions and fun were way more important than expensive recording equipment and fancy studios, so everybody could join in.
In July 1997 I'd collected over 90 minutes of covers, and put out a cassette called "The Name of None of These Bands in Talking Heads", containing 23 covers of songs by Talking Heads, David Byrne and Tom Tom Club. The tape was only available on the TH website and still circulates among fans.
People kept sending me songs however, so a year later a similar tape called "Letting the Tapes go By" was brought into circulation. I could probably go on forever putting out tapes like this, but it cost me a lot of time to dub and send all the tapes, while I knew that the tapes did not reach many fans after all.
...And that's where the idea for this CD came from. "Don't Worry About the Cover Band" (I really ran out of silly titles, so don't hold your breath for a sequel) contains re-recorded and remastered versions of songs from the original covertapes, as well as newly recorded material by bands from seven different countries.
I hope you enjoy the music collected here and I would like to thank all the contributors, both those who made it to the CD and those who didn't, for the hard work they put into this project.
