Old Snack's Take On Flamin' Groovies' "Please Please Girl"
In this week's edition of Covering Tracks, we turn our attention to Denton heroes Old Snack. The trio released their debut, Everything Is Happening So Fast, last fall, which tears through nine tracks in less than 20 minutes.
That efficiency is particularly evident on album track "Please Please Girl," a cover from power pop pioneers Flamin' Groovies' 1976 LP, Shake Some Action. As singer/guitarist Aaron White admits, "We ratchet up the original quite a few notches." The original clocks in at a tidy 2:05, but Old Snack rambles through their version in 1:37. It's a respectful rendition that adds just enough fuzz and snarl.
Catch Old Snack as they jangle through songs about snacks, Smokey and the Bandit and unrequited love on Saturday, April 7, at Rubber Gloves. Got a great cover you'd like to see profiled here, let us know!
