Audio: Joanna Gruesome Do Galaxie 500’s ‘Tugboat’

Singer Alanna McArdle.

I love this British band, Joanna Gruesome.

Although Joanna Gruesome pulled an unofficial video directed by their drummer, David Sanford, for “Tugboat” that Pitchfork briefly posted earlier today, I thought you might dig hearing the song, which is the flip of the group’s single, “Sugarcrush.”

Listen: Joanna Gruesome Cover Galaxie 500’s “Tugboat”

I like Cardiff-based Joanna Gruesome a lot. Their debut album, Weird Sister, is great. Here’s a cover of Galaxie 500’s “Tugboat,” the flip of their single, “Sugarcrush.”

The group comes from Cardiff, England. The five members are Alanna McArdle on vocals, Owen on guitar, Max on bass, George on guitar and Dave on drums. I haven’t been able to track down the guys’ last names.
