Same Song – Different Band

Jay Reatard, David Bowie, Beck, Lords of the New Church, and Sonny Curtis and the Crickets on Earth Patrol

Check out originals by Lords of the New Church, Jay Reatard, Beck, David Bowie as well as Sonny Curtis and the Crickets after the turn. EPM “who fought the law and who won?” Out!

  • Hi people from Oregon, I used to visit Earthpatrol everyday when I got the office. I discover the site at the google while searching for skateboard videos, it was more than one year ago, since then I’m adicted to the site. I’m typing form Porto Alegre-RS, Brazil. Today I decided to leave a message because of Seu Jorge’s song, I’m a huge fan of him as I am of Bowie, Beck and The Clash. That’s it, keep the great the job you are doing there, see ya!
