Co-Sign: Vampire Weekend Covering Rancid's "Ruby Soho"
You thought they were kidding about the ska thing, huh? They were not kidding. In an interview with us back in January, Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson revealed his band's hidden passion for No Doubt, Sublime, and, most tellingly, Operation Ivy, the outfit that would later morph into Rancid. So is it any surprise they just got around to covering "Ruby Soho" for the BBC's Radio 1? Download it here. Skampire Weekend, let's go! [The Huddle Formation, via Andy Greenwald]
