Never been a fan of cover versions and probably never will be. But from time to time a few interesting do come along and (my) childhood heroes OMD covering The xx certainly wasn’t something I saw coming. Isn’t the normal procedure that new upcoming bands cover songs by bands they’ve been influenced by? And not the other way round? But nice for a change! Although OMD has labeled it “rough mix”, their cover of VCR sounds like it could easily be a lost track from one of their recording sessions 30 years ago. Doesn't it?
