The Coverclub was founded December 2006. The basic idea? Take an artist or a theme and have a couple of cool (Dutch) bands record some cover songs. Then put the mp3’s on a website and let everyone download them for free. Simple and cool. So far, we’ve had 3 editions: Christmas, Neil Young and Punk 1977 – the mp3’s are still available. Every edition’s line-up is different.
Now, we’re happy to announce a new edition! The theme we’ve chosen is ‚Guilty pleasures – songs you always wanted to cover but were afraid to like…‘.
While many coverbands may think it’s cool to play and record Top 40 hit songs, covering popular tunes is really not done among indie bands with a bit of street credibility. However, for the latest Coverclub edition, 10 cool Dutch indie acts came out of the closet and recorded their favourite ‚guilty pleasures‘.
