Foo Fighters Cover B-52s And Psychedelic Furs On Surprise EP '01020225'

Monday, 14 October 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Foo Fighters have put out a sixth surprise EP.

The Seattle rockers released '01020225' over the weekend as part of their ongoing Foo Files archival series. It features four tracks, including a grungy cover of the Psychedelic Furs' Sister Europe, which appeared on the Psychedelic Furs' 1980 debut album, as well as their take on the B-52s' Planet Claire, the second single from the band's 1979 self-titled debut album.

The EP also includes versions of the Foos' The One and Win Or Lose. The former appeared on the soundtrack to the 2002 film Orange County, while the latter featured on the soundtrack to the 2001 movie Out Cold. Both were released as b-sides for their single All My Life. Have a listen below.

The band launched the vault series in July as a way to start celebrating their 25th anniversary and last month dropped the '01070725' EP that included covers of Arcade Fire's Keep the Car Running and the Dead Kennedys’ Holiday in Cambodia.

They’ve also released '00111125 Live in London', '00070725 Live at Studio 606' and '00050525 Live in Roswell'. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come.

The end of any decade is, essentially, meaningless. We attach poignancy to it because we’re all narcissists in some way—we want this decade, our decade, to stand for something. Musically, the ‘90s did a better job than some of its peers in allowing us to think that: young people were swept up by grunge, or the gloss of modern R&B, or punk’s chart explosion, or the battle between the east and west coasts.
