DXism – Tribute Bands

A continuing series of helpful advice, humorous observations, questions about life, and obscure movie quotes and musical references, as posted by Scene Magazine staff writer D.X. Ferris on Twitter. Follow @dxferris for daily doses of the magic.

Look out!  (The previous MUST be said in the voice of Ronnie James Dio.)  We've got not one, not two, but FOUR Dxisms for you this morning.  The man has been on fire lately.

Today's focus:  Tribute bands.

1)  Tribute band idea: 138 Special. Misfits songs played Southern-rock style. Singer name: Donnie van Danzig.

2)  Tribute band idea: Long Division: A group that plays long, jammed-out Joy Division covers and live versions of New Order 12" mixes.


Bonus cuts:


1)
Idea for new villain in future Spider-Man movie: The Jesus Lizard.

2) A long while back, a friend had an idea for a drum corps called Satanic Killing Machine. I think that would be awesome.

    For what it's worth, your second idea is already in realization — see the Columbus band Jam Division, which is doing jammy and dubbed out versions of Joy Division songs. Influences on their myspace page: “Joy Division, King Tubby, Grateful Dead.” Not to be confused with the reggae Joy Division cover band Jah Division . . .

    As for other cover bands, how about bluegrass covers of Pink Floyd?
