Walter Sickert Covers Bob Dylan

We're now in the timeline where our favorite weirdo steamcrunkers are doing straightforward Bob Dylan covers. Walter Sickert of Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys fame has released a cover of Dylan's iconic "The Times They Are a-Changin'" which obviously reflects our current times. It's just a straight up vocals/guitar/harmonica cover of one of the more legendary songs from one of the most legendary musicians still out there. 

In a message that went out to their followers on Bandcamp, they said:

“Hi Friends,

It's been quite a mindfuckitude to be isolated from everyone and everything we hold dear except our tiny little family.

We could not be more grateful to you for the continued support. The future is uncertain, the arts sector is decimated, and a return to "normal" is just not going to happen (at least not any time soon) so this support has been invaluable.

Walter made this cover with a deep feeling of gratefulness to you. Thank you, seriously - the support has been amazing!

Please enjoy this little piece of our isolation - from our BUNKER to yours;


- Edrie, Walter and Wednesday Alice”
