Their covers of Neil Young (‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’), The Beach Boys (‘I Get Around’), The Ramones ('Havana Affair'), Dion & The Belmonts ('A Teenager In Love') and The Stooges (‘Search and Destroy’) have been collated from various B-sides and rarities but only their rendition of David Bowie’s ‘Suffragette City’ has previously been made available digitally.
