Listen: Mo Kenney shares haunting cover of Guided By Voices’ ‘Game of Pricks’

Featuring Joel Plaskett on piano

Mo Kenney has shared a cover of Guided By Voices’ classic track “Game of Pricks” that is a fittingly stripped-back and haunting number for these times. Kenney is accompanied by Joel Plaskett on the piano for this rendition of the cut from GBV’s 1995 lo-fi masterpiece Alien Lanes.

“I hope Guided by Voices fans enjoy my take on the song. I slowed it right down and set it to piano. You can really hear how cool the lyrics are,” says Kenney (via The East Mag).

“Joel Plaskett and I produced it. We sat on opposite sides of the studio, Joel at the piano and me sitting in front of a mic. It was one of the best moments of making the record.”
