Toronto punk outfit PUP have shared a cover of Grandaddy’s “A.M. 180” from their 1997 album Under the Western Freeway. The cover was recorded by PUP bassist Nestor Chumak and mixed by Dave Schiffman.
“Grandaddy are one of the unsung hero bands of indie rock,” says PUP’s drummer Zack Mykula in a release. “A best kept secret. I mean, forgive me for going ham, but this song is like a lily in an otherwise barren valley. An outstanding piece of songwriting, doing more with less than most any other song of the same caliber. So, that’s why we decided to cover it.”

PUP have also announced that they will be releasing PUPTHEZINE Vol. 4 titled “QUARANZINE”. The issue will include cut-out PUP figurines, a postcard, each band members’ resume, guitar tabs for “Anaphylaxis,” a pedal board breakdown, a flexi-disc of a ska song written in quarantine (hailed as “a truly unparalleled, transcendent musical masterpiece” by PUP themselves) and much much more.
