Please Don't Tell Me to Stop
As part of our Kickstarter campaign to press the Vinyl for Golden Age, we offered to record a cover song - whatever song our backer wanted. Wendy and Chris Duby were generous enough to commission this track, and we're super grateful to them. Chris is Evan's brother, and the truth is when we found out he had selected that reward, we were sure he was going to ask us to record the most ridiculous and challenging song possible. Something embarrassing, all in good fun. It took a while to come up with the song, but once he did, I was pretty excited and relieved. I love alot of Madonna's music, and this song has always been one of my faves. So here you go - this is a cover song commissioned by Wendy and Chris, which feels more like a dare than anything else. We had alot of fun recording it. It's fairly ridiculous, and has the dubious distinction of being the first Beat Radio recording ever to feature the human beat box.
