[RATING: 5] More premium ska covers action here from The Bluebeaters as their latest 45 drops shortly. This’ll be the second single from their excellent Everybody Knows album released in the spring. The whole point of a cover should be an inspired re-imagining of the original and here the band manage that twice over with impressive ska reworks of early Springsteen number Hungry Heart and The Model from electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk. Incredibly, despite their quality, neither of these is the best track on the album.
