LISTEN! Japanese Voyeurs cover ‘Closer’ by Nine Inch Nails and it’s awesome

We’re a big fan of London nu-nu-grungers, Japanese Voyeurs. When they played our show in January, they covered Nine Inch Nails classic, ‘Closer’. They have also recorded it. Sadly, we reckon the Oscar-winning pile of awesome that is Trent Reznor won’t let JVs release it. Luckily, we’ve got our hands on it, so you can listen to it.

There’s just something slightly unnerving about hearing the lovely Romily Alice singing those dirty, dirty words. You know how that creepy guy looked in the shit rock club you went to last week when he was mouthing, “I wanna fuck you like an animal…” to the scared-looking girl cowering by the bar? That, but from a pretty girl. It totally inverts traditional social conventions of public declarations of love! Yep.

“I wanna feel you from the inside.” Yeah? Cheers, mate.

Aaaaanyway, here’s a video of Raz interviewing Romily Alice and Johnny Seymour of Japanese Voyeurs at Sonisphere Festival 2010 while men were sucking poo from a portable toilet. You can expect to see them at some more festivals this summer. Oh yes.
