I keep hearing Suicide’s “Ghost Rider” in different weird places lately.
For example, I purchased the solo Henry Rollins LP Hot Animal Machine, and found their cover of “Ghost Rider.” Then I stumbled upon another version by The Gories, after getting their big ol’ compilation I Know You Fine, But How You Doin’.
Found out a whole buncha folks have tried to recapture the undeniable magic of the original. There were mixed results. They are what follows, including a poll of which you think is the best version. Thanks in advance.
PS: My Pavement review is delayed because the picture-place is broken or something, I wasn’t really listening. Either way, stay tuned for that, it was pretty fabulous.
