“Early Morning Wake Up Call” – The Hives

Sweden’s garage punk kings, The Hives, superbly cover the Australian new wave classic by Flash and the Pan.  This cover is sooooo 1981, but in the best and coolest way.   The wall of noise comprising heavy guitars and synthesizers is beyond awesome.  If the Hives made a music video for this shot on grainy 16mm, it would be damn near perfect.  From the Hives 2010 EP “Tarred and Feathered.”
