Hayseed Dixie – Ace Of Spades (lp. Let There Be Rockgrass)

Yes this is a cover of the classic Motorhead track, but not as you know it. This Southern American Bluegrass band have grown a big following thanks to their distinctive covers which started with an album of AC/DC covers.  It was this version of Lemmy’s classic which first grabbed my attention, replacing the rocking guitars and fret work with Banjos and violins. This isn’t as dull as it sounds, the banjo playing is phenomenal I’ve never heard such fast fingerwork. If that wasn’t enough the vocals are excellent, the southern pronounciation of some of the lines is great and completes the whole sound. If you get a chance to hear this do, okay if you’re a die hard Motorhead fan you probably hate it!
