I’m not against the idea of cover/tribiute bands/artists. Sometimes one discovers the original/finds a new facet through their interpretation; but sometimes ones asks himself why the artists didn’t do their own thing because there is clearly enough talent and ideas there, which end up as small vignettes peppered on top of the generally renowned work they are interpreting.
Were they already burned and are contempt in steering a bit off the known path?
Sometimes cover/tribiute bands/artist freak me
out because they have that one component that evokes the feeling of the original, but the rest is off and it’s like witnessing the original through a fewer dream filter.
