Having recently torn up Australian stages supporting UK rockers Kasabian on their national tour, Melbourne rockers The Delta Riggs dropped by triple j this morning for Like A Version and delivered a killer cover of the Glass Animals track Gooey.
Prior to revealing their chosen cover song, the band gave listeners a hint about its title with the clue, “Most body fluids are this consistency.” They then ripped into the cover, injecting some bluesy grit into the Glass Animals slow jam. As a nod to the original track’s R’n’B flavour, The Delta Riggs even managed to weave in the riff from the 2001’s Eve and Gwen Stefani track Let Me Blow Ya Mind.
While in the studio, the band also treated listeners to a performance of their own track, Supersonic Casualties, a personal favourite of legendary guitar god Jimmy Page which features on their latest record Dipz Zebazios due out September 26th.
