“In the early ’70s it seemed every dag I knew had a copy of Cosmo’s Factory under their arm and played it at every party I went to,” Jimmy Barnes recalls. Now, an Aussie supergroup – including Jak Housden (The Whitlams) and David Symes (Boy & Bear) – has created an album of Creedence covers, with the vocals provided by Katie Wighton (All Our Exes Live In Texas) and Ness Quinn (Hot Spoke).
They give the classic catalogue their own spin, with the result being more San Francisco than swampy. Very tasteful, indeed.
Creedence is out now via Universal.
