Die griechische blackened Death Metal Crew veröffentlicht heute ein Cover von Mean Machine` von The Cramps aus dem Jahr 1994. Bisher war der Song nur als Bonustrack auf dem „Lesbian Show“ Album erhältlich. Jetzt könnt ihr euch den entsprechenden Lyricclip hier ansehen.
Vocalist Efthimis Karadimas erzählt:
„Mean Machine is the first ever song I listened by the Cramps. Its filthy sound and performance might well be described as a spit to the face of anything normal out there. Lyric-wise I’d say it is more about accepting the role of the bad guy, rather than trying to prove the opposite. 90s were wild in terms of social approbation. I felt connected to that song for somehow it made me feel it was like we were the “mean machines”, the outcasts, the bad guys, people did not want to have any connection with. The Cramps have ceased to exist, but thanks to Burton’s Wednesday Netflix series, they are beautifully haunting our dreams again. Mean Machine’s our tribute to them. We share it with you untouched, right from the depths of XX Century.“
