Pop Offerings: Belgian Fog – 1979

Pop Offerings: We mentioned we’d be following this band closely. Well, our interest was well merited. This cover of the Smashing Pumpkins classic “1979”, is a refreshing glance at a neglected track from the 90s. Had we not been familiar with the original we would have assumed this was it, an organic voicing and instrumentation that fits the character of the song and a driving beat and guitar that adds a few watts at the same time. We’re not sure how Corgan would feel about this working of the song, but we are enjoying it.
