Son of Dave covers Dizzee

After taking on Daft Punk’s ‘Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger‘ a few months ago, the audacious Son of Dave has put his harmonica and vocal skills to the test again, transforming Dizzee Rascal & Armand Van Helden’s hit ‘Bonkers‘ .

By way of explanation, here’s a note from the man himself:

“My Dearest Audience,

The publicists and admen will be circulating a little film of me, Son of Dave, performing a zippy new song by Dizzee Rascal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It’s quite an amusing tune, though it has too many words for my taste.

Some of you from the Grime scene may stumble in to watch by accident. I hope you aren’t affronted. Please don’t send hate mail or stab me in the bum. I’m just a musician, and a family man. I’m not the enemy!

If there are any cats from Radio One, watching, it’s my distinct pleasure to distract you from your daily Grime. Now play the Son of Dave singles that have been sitting on your desks, and I’ll send you some free clean undershirts.

Please read the Stool Pigeon for my latest column on the G20 Demo, visit the Myspace site which I’m told is quite good, and the Blog where all sorts of nerds hang out. And kids, pay for your downloads, or we musicians aren’t going to bother entertaining you anymore. You’re getting on our nerves, frankly.”
