Things You Need To Hear Dept.: A Bagpipe-Assisted Cover Of “Smoke On The Water”

Jul 14th, 2009 // 2 Comments

Dear Pipapelli: Thank you for recording a cover of Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water” while in Athens, Ga. this spring. Thank you for deciding to include a bagpipe in the song’s instrumentation. And most of all, thank you for really putting your all into this cover, if only because it may be the first time I’ve ever been able to apply the verb “shred” to a bagipe solo.

  1. I want the cilia in my ear back that shriveled and died while listening to that.

  2. I never realized I felt so fondly for the original until I heard it punished like this.
