Spike Slawson, leads Atom Ellis, Jamin Barton and Prairie Prince through a version of Depeche Mode’s classic “Enjoy The Silence” while performing at Slim’s on 11th street in San Francisco’s South of Market nightlife district.
Recorded live in concert at Slim’s, Uke-Hunt were appearing on a bill with Spike’s old band The Swingin’ Utters. The song was originally released by the British electronica group Depeche Mode as the second single from Violator, their seventh studio album, that was issued on Mute/Sire records on January 16th 1990.
Yo! pero esta versión de “Enjoy the Silence” merece su atención. Spike Slawson no es un cantante muy conocido, al menos fuera del círculo punk que es tan cerrado. Es el cantante de Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (grupo conformado por Slawson, Fat Mike de NOFX y el vocalist of Lagwagon, guitarrista de los Bad Religion and others) una banda que se dedica a hacer covers punk de canciones pop. Spike nee Sean Slawson performs Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence” with his lounge-core band Uke-Hunt at Slim’s featuring members of the much maligned but eminently lovable touring band The New Cars.
