While searching for Song of the Week videos, DTL has become somewhat obsessed with the glut of stinking cover versions of popular songs uploaded by seemingly deluded Youtubers… So much so we are starting a new feature, Bedroom Zeroes.
We’re kicking things off with a real humdinger – a very disagreeable version of Small Faces’ psychedelic pop classic Itchycoo Park by prolific Youtube strummer posturex1.
You could easily waste away two or three hours watching the hobbit-like upstart butchering dozens of classics – marvelling at his Windows Movie Maker skills and bewildering self-confidence. However this particular offering stands out because of his over-exuberant attempts at replicating Steve Marriot’s powerful voice. It’s compulsive viewing.
Similarly fascinating is the plethora the gushing comments from his ‘fans’ which succeed only in swelling the nominally talented, hobbit-like musician’s delusions of grandeur.
Mind you, the corpulent singer does get maximum points for enthusiasm. He comes into his own after two minutes, letting out a pig-like snort before negotiating the final chorus key change with a series of blood-curdling screams. The only thing that could make this video any funnier would be if he was wearing nothing but a giant nappy.
