Not Men But Giants – ‘Rush Hour’

Recently discovered this little cover of Jane Weidlin’s (ex-The Go-Go’s guitarist) Top Ten US Hit ‘Rush Hour’ by Mullingar pop-tinted act Not Men But Giants.  The country-tingled remake received a rave review from Jane herself,  who was delighted  with the ”wonderful job’ NMBG did with ‘reinventing my little tune’ after the band forwarded the track to her.

With slide guitar substituting synths of the ’80s, the cover first surfaced on a podcast for Shannonside’s music show ‘The Baggy Jumper’ in December 2009.

The track, along with their latest EP is available for free here.

And for those too young to remember or are unfamiliar with the original, here it is, dolphins and all…
