Mogwai Criticises Bands For Beatles Cover Album

Scottish band MOGWAI have attacked artists THE FRATELLIS, KAISER CHIEFS and JAMES MORRISON for making a Beatles cover album, insisting they cannot "pull it off". A host of bands will record versions of famous Beatles songs for the LP, which marks the 40th anniversary of the Sergeant Peppers album. Mogwai say they're unimpressed with artists attempts to cover the Beatles tracks, although they are working on the release of a new Pixies tribute CD this month (Apr07). Mogwai say on their website, "Such musical wonders as James Morrison and The Fratellis are to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Sergeant Pepper's Beatles album by covering songs from it. I cannot wait to hear this meaningful idea. "Only thing is, can anyone really better the genius of With A Little Help From My Friends? I know Wet, Wet, Wet came really close but it'll take mastery of music to pull this one off."
