Beginning in October last year, WA muso Dan Cribb has been delivering incredible punk covers of iconic songs from The Simpsons on a monthly basis, and now his latest effort sees him team up with Brissy singer-songwriter Jeremy Neale.
Following on from tracks like ‘Flaming Moe’s,’ and ‘Baby On Board‘, Cribb’s latest creation is a re-imagining of the song ‘You’re Checkin’ In’ from episode one of the show’s ninth season ‘The City Of New York vs. Homer Simpson’.
The song is taken from a musical that the Simpson family goes to see in New York, telling the story of a washed-up Hollywood celebrity who checks into a rehab clinic.
“While You’re Checkin In’ isn’t too well known compared to some of The Simpsons‘ other hits, it has some insanely catchy melodies and lends itself perfectly to becoming a punk rock tune,” Cribb tells Music Feeds. “The song has a pretty wide vocal range that Jeremy nailed. His voice is magic and he’s a super nice dude.”
This will be the sixth song in the series of covers, and Cribb has said that there will be at least another six more to come.
