Listen: METZ releases cover of Gary Numans ‘M.E.’

METZ's rendition of 'M.E.' is one of three cover songs released on a bonus 7-inch

Canadian punk rock band METZ has released a cover of Gary Numan’s track ‘M.E.’.

METZ’s rendition of Gary Numan’s ‘M.E.’ is one of three cover songs which were originally released on a bonus 7inch single, which also included the vinyl LP version of Automat. The other two covers are The Urinals’ “I’m a Bug” and Sparklehorse’s “Pig.”

Although this song has multiple covers by other indie rock artists, METZ makes it their own with awesome instrumentals, melding their noise rock fury with his neo-industrial ambitions and visuals to go with it. The video is animated by Martin MacPherson and it features all three band members, guitarist and vocalist Alex Edkins, bassist Chris Slorach and drummer Hayden Menzies. The band is animated as a three-headed Pleasure Principle hydra dressed in a suit, illustrated by Kirin Booth.
