E-Jitz – Def Con Wan


Here’s a brilliant cover of the Poppies’ Def Con One, done E-Jitz’ inimitable style as Def Con Wan. Even has the proper take on the Pepsi logo. It’s the crashing guitars that make this, as they did the original.

Blurb: Several years in the making, Aberdeen’s E-Jitz unleash an unexpected onslaught on some of your favourite records from yesterday. Double A-sides are their covers of The Young Knives’ ‘She’s Attracted To’ (re-Christened ‘She’s a Tractor Too’) and Pop Will Eat Itself’s ‘Def Con One’ (Def Con Wan). Also included are ‘WTFLOL’ (a deep, moody, yet poppy take on Happy Mondays’ ‘WFL’) and ‘Big Business is Ernie Wise’ (or ‘This is not a Love Song’ as PiL fans may remember it). By the 10″ and you’ll get a bonus MP3 featuring the E-Jitz re-imagining early Simple Minds on their cover of ‘Celebrate’.
