ALBUM OF THE WEEK: Learning English Lesson 3 Mersey Beat! The Sound Of Liverpool by Die Toten Hosen

My pick for album of the week this time is a covers album, the latest in Die Toten Hosen’s series that deep dives into particular genres.  Last time, it was punk.  This time: Liverpool!

Actually, that’s a bit misleading.  The songs here are largely Motown, but they’re in the style of Liverpool’s most famous musical alums.

And it’s a blast. Sadly, streams don’t appear to be available, so all I can share is the videos above.

But take my word for it, it’s a terrific, fun record.

And my runner-up for the month: A similar effort by post-punkers A Loss for Words.

Nicely done.
