Carnivores covered the B-52s’ “Give Me Back My Man” (listen)
by Andrew Sacher
Atlanta garage rockers Carnivores (who have collaborated with Black Lips’ Cole Alexander and Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox) were last in NYC on Halloween for a show at Shea Stadium, where in addition to playing their own material, they “dressed up as ” (aka covered) The B-52s in honor of the occasion. The band has since taken their B-52s love to the studio to record their version of “Give Me Back My Man.” They loosen up the stiff new wave of the original, making it more in line with Carnivores’ own garagey material. It’s a solid cover, and you can check it out for yourself, as it makes its premiere in this post.
