I don't like song A whomever it's done by.

I don't care for B but it's a good cover and the style lends itself to the song.

I' m happy that I won't hear either ever again.

I'm voting B because they sound drunk.

A is interesting musically. B is a faintly amusing comedy routine that goes on far too long.

So the original is by The Yardbirds? That sounds slightly odd, the vocal isn't too bad in a posh-ish psyche kinda way, but it feels disconnected from the music, which isn't particularly interesting. Ooh, this Space Negros version sounds just as cheap as that Space Lady track I chose way back in this cup's youth, but it has none of the charm. I like the little tinny drum machine, but not much else here.

I only know Mojo Nixon from his collaboration with Jello Biafra, which was much more of a whoopin' shootin' blast of silly satire than this, which seems a bit like a drunken yankee John Shuttleworth.

Nah, I'm sorry, but this is slap bang in the middle of abstain territory.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Thankyou A. You need to have in-tune vocals for a higher grade, but the little keyboard fills show that at least some effort has been put into developing the backing. Your overall result for the grade 7 performance project is D. And hey, you can tell your dad he might want to come and see me and the guys playing down Hank's tonight. Whisky chasers on the house with the first round. We'll be doing some old covers. It'll be a blast.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A - not particularly fond of the Yardbirds' version – perhaps their weakest single, although Good Morning Little Schoolgirl might have something to say about that – but this is worse, all progged up and a fairly horrid noise to my fleshly ears. 1.5 / 10
B - let's get this right: so Angel Corpus Christie is a hipster and Mojo Nixon is a comedian? Fuck my old granny, I despair sometimes. Well, often, actually. My take on Mr Nixon is that he is the greatest protest singer since Woody Guthrie, and a major anarchist hero, against malls, money, capitalism, censorship, slebs, royalty and sobriety, and all for creativity, inebriety, fucking, movies, Elvis/rock & roll, eating junk food and working class culture. With and without Mr Roper, he's made maybe ten albums and I've yet to hear a clunker on any of them. This version of Woody's anthem against inequality is a case in point. Not only does he sing all the verses - or spit them out, listen to the way he articulates 'private property' – including the one the nationalist apologists leave out, but he spirals out of it into one of his free associative rants (the male Patti Smith in this respect) creating his personal vision of paradise, and then segues back into the song in a brilliant way. And all the while, that simple rockabilly rhythm carrying you forward. And yes, it's funny in places, and he's written some comedy too, but here he's as serious as can be.
8 / 10

I love A. It samples Mission of Burma, Led Zeppelin, and the original Yardbirds single, managing to provide a wholly fresh spin on a psych classic that is as trippy as the original.
