Today Is the Day Fucked Up’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas” Cover Arrives


The first and hopefully last time we’ll spend a morning typing “Do They Know It’s Christmas” into iTunes. Matador promises that the long awaited Band Aid cover, featuring what Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham described to Pitchfork as “the best and the worst of the music industry,” will hit the digital music store today. It’s not there yet, but Consequence of Sound has the batting order: Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend, then Bob Mould, Tegan and Sara, TVOTR’s Kyp Malone, Yo La Tengo, Kevin Drew, Andrew WK, and a special cameo from the Wu-Tang’s GZA, whose half-hour studio session apparently resulted in exactly one minute of usable material. Worth it for the bare-chested Pink Eyes cover alone. [h/t Daily Swarm]
