Note from Jake: Everyone, sorry that this post is a day late. Pete had the entire month worth of these cover songs written and ready to go, before September was even over. I tried to get this thing in the queue before I went on vacation, but was having a difficult time rounding up the track. Pete forwarded it to me today, so here it is. Thanks again, Pete for the whole month worth of LMC guest posts! (end of Jake’s note)

La Musica Coolica #22 (OI)
Ready? Okay! Bad Town was covered on a tribute to Operation Ivy CD. I am not quite sure when the album “Take Warning: The Songs of Operation Ivy” was released. I also know that of the songs on that album I only really like less than half. I am unsure of the artists in this song… it was released as “Marshall Arts.” I think is has something to do with Marshall Goodman from the Long Beach Dub Allstars… I always imagined that they stayed kind of anonymous due to potential recording contract infringements and whatnot, but to be truthful, everything above, aside from the facts, is pure speculation. Anyway, this is their version, and I like it the same way I like the original. I enjoy the complete contrast of style between the two versions, and I hope you do too.
