The Bobby Lees Cover Bo Diddley

Considering that Woodstock, NY's The Bobby Lees played a form of blues based garage punk, covering Bo Diddley makes perfect sense. Except their version of the classic "I'm a Man" barely keeps the minimum of the original to still be a cover. It's nearly a total reworking of the song, while somehow still being a blues song. It's a nasty as hell dirty and noisy version of "I'm a Man," but it's still somehow "I'm a Man." If you're a purist, this won't be for you, but if you want to hear some of the noisiest garage punk you've heard in years, check this one out.

You can listen to The Bobby Lees's take on "I'm a Man" below. Skin Suit, the new album from The Bobby Lees, will be out May 8 on Alive Naturalsound Records. For more on The Bobby Lees, check out their website.
