1001 7" Records You Must Own No.53 Backyard Babies - Babylon / Stars

Cover songs as singles can sometimes leave a bad taste in the mouth, if they’re too similar to the original they seem pointless, Backyard Babies don’t take this route, they amp the original up to 11 and bring in a certain Mr. Ginger Wildheart to make it even more worthwhile. Not dissing the original Faster Pussycat version but this has so much more energy and power, backing this up with ‘Stars’ and ode to some of their favourite and not so favourite artists with the catchy chorus of “Shut Up You Fuck” you have another outstanding 7”.
