Pretty excited for a physical release of La Guerre Est Meurtre. Dose anybody know what apples song is being covered? Also Cheers, the Royal Flying Rhino.

I'm not sure of what song is being covered... I know that "Touch the Water" was given takes by the Apples, Von, and even the Lilys (their version is on the "Selected" EP; a sort of rarities/unreleased single), so it might be a candidate. In which case 'cover' might not be the best characterization, but bleh.

You're welcome in any case :)

I know that Jim had written some early apples stuff, dots 1-2-3, Touch the water, To Love the Vibration of the Bulb, and one more i can't remember.

You probably read my post before I revised it. Jim wrote me to clarify that it's not the Apples covering Von Hemmling, it's an early Apples song that Jim is singing lead on. Actually I'll just post part of his email (I hope he doesn't mind):

the apples in stereo song, "stripes and buttons", on the cd isn't really a cover. i wrote the song during my time in the band, for the band, and the recording is from a live apples gig (I'm singing).

The only real cover is of the song "vegetable reefer", by the lilys, in section 6.

I can only fathom what an apples version of Stripes and Buttons would sound like. Fuzzy and Noisy I hope.

La Guerre Est Meurtre is a really good sonic piece. I would recommend everyone listen at least once: http://www.vonhemmling.net/Downloads/Download_Discography.html
