Sacrilege. I'd like to hear their version of Birth Control's "Gamma Ray" though.

Lately I've been listening a lot to "Wild Dogs" from The Rods. Their version of "You keep Me Hangin' On" is a highlight on that record (among many of them imo) :

In an interview I read New Model Army didnt like this version at all. Makes me wonder as this is perfection.
