Hear The Sex Pistols, Blondie And Melvins Cover Small Faces ‘Song Of A Baker’

Members of the Sex Pistols, Blondie and the Melvins have covered Small Faces’ ‘Song Of A Baker’ – listen below.

The interpretation is made by Cabbage ‘N Mash, a project involving Dale Crover, of the Melvins, and director Bob Hannam, who collaborated with Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, and producer/engineer Melvins Toshi Kasai (on keyboards).

As Consequence reports, Crover, who primarily plays drums with the Melvins, handles guitar on the cover. Hannam, who directed the documentary The Colossus of Destiny – A Melvins Tale, provides lead vocals.

The collaboration grew out of Crover and Hannam’s admiration for the Small Faces, a 1960s British rock group that Rod Stewart later fronted as the Faces reincarnation.

“Song Of A Baker” appeared on the Small Faces’ third album, “Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake”, released in 1968.

Crover said, “Bob and I, who are huge fans of the Small Faces, thought it would be fun to do a tribute to the band. Somehow, we got Clem Burke from Blondie and Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols to join us.” , as well as Toshi Kasai. I’ve always loved this song and I’m so glad I was recording with these guys.”

Hannam added: “After many conversations over the years about wanting to record a few of our favorite Small Faces songs, last year we finally called up our good friends Clem and Glen’s dream rhythm section and went ahead to Toshi studio in Los Angeles to It is a personal honor to salute one of the greatest and most underrated bands of the 60s with such talented musicians.”

“Song Of A Baker” was released alongside Small Faces’ record “Donkey Rides, A Penny A Glass” on August 21st. It comes on limited edition 10-inch vinyl from Amphetamine Reptile Records at this site and digitally via Cabbage ‘N Mash’s Bandcamp page.

Formed in 1969, Faces formally disbanded in 1975 after Stewart left the group. Around the same time, guitarist Ronnie Wood started playing with The Rolling Stones.

The band recorded four studio albums in its time, most recently “Ooh La La” in 1973.

It was reported last year that the group were recording new music, after breaking up more than four decades ago.
