Gouge Away Covers The Pixies

It's probably not a surprise that a band named Gouge Away are fans of the Pixies. The Fort Lauderdale band have decided to not cover their namesake, but instead the classic "Wave of Mutilation." Despite it being a very faithful cover, singer Christina Michelle brings a ferocity to the song not heard in the original. That's not to say that this is a hardcore version of the song: There's definitely a spirit of fun to be had, and maybe a sense of brattiness more like The Muffs than the Pixies. 

You can listen to Gouge Away's version of "Wave of Mutilation" below. 25% of the 7" sales for the single ("Wave of Mutilation" is the B-side) are being donated to rescue.org. You can get your copy through Bandcamp. For more on Gouge Away, check out their website.
