In 2002, Pulp released what would be their last single before going on hiatus: Bad Cover Version, a song about cheap imitations - in life and in love. In this vein, the b-sides included on CD2 of the single are bad cover versions of two Pulp songs, sung by Roisin Murphy (formerly of Moloko), and Nick Cave. And, to complete the process, the accompanying video is itself a (bad?) cover version, with actors and impersenators playing the parts of the various stars that contributed to the infamous Band Aid video 'Do They Know It's Christmas'. (One would think it was 1984 all over again... or 1989, or 2004, with the follow-up further releases...) Oh, the irony. :)
