New Floyd cover versions coming from Fruits de Mer

Many of you will recall previous Pink Floyd related releases from Fruits de Mer Records: Us and Them's version of Pink Floyd's Julia Dream, and "What Colour is Pink?" a 7" pink vinyl EP of covers of three tracks from A Saucerful of Secrets, by the German psych/spacerock band Vibravoid. Both of these proved rather popular.

In a month's time - November 11th, 2013 - a new, limited 7" single is released by Fruits de Mer. On coloured vinyl, with a proud boast of "no downloads and no CDs", Vespero (a Russian progressive/psychedelic rock band) offer their versions of Careful With That Axe, Eugene and One Of These Days. Both songs, of course, have a fairly violent theme to them, which may or may not have influenced their choice of track to cover, and as you'll hear from the excerpt here, they've done a good job at approaching Eugene and keeping things authentic sounding.

It will be on sale in November, and you can get the single direct from and from like-minded shops (virtual or brick-built) such as Heyday, Norman and Rough Trade.
