Heinali and Matt Finney Cover Metallica and Lou Reed

Our friends Heinali and Matt Finney have done an interesting thing, covering a track ("Junior Dad") from the god-awful collaboration between Lou Reed and Metallica. Funny - Lou Reed and Metallica were once upon a time musicians I respected. Metallica shot that a long time ago, but Lou Reed held on, until now. Yup, Lulu is that bad- bad enough to destroy everything great by the Velvet Underground, and bad enough to destroy the greatness of Magic & Loss. Lou Reed has apparently gone off the fucking deep end. And I dare to say he's not coming back.

In any case, Heniali and Matt Finney still have our respect, because this reinterpretation is pretty good. You can download it now, for free, from their Bandcamp page.
