Whole Wide World




Bizarrely today's track which was picked last weekend fits in nicely after The Only Ones post after Brian's comment yesterday where he mentions the soundtrack to This Summer, as the original version of Whole Wide World by Wreckless Eric also featured in the film and on the record. Meursault's cover comes from an album of  special versions of their own songs and cover versions crowd funded and crowd chosen. The Organ Grinder's Monkey was produced in order to part fund Meursault's tour of the East Coast of America in 2014. The album contains covers of songs by the likes of Low, Paws and The Magnetic Fields and different versions of their own songs including Dearly Distracted and One Day This Will All Be Fields. As well as being a worthy album at the time it is also an essential one for any fan of Meursault and can still be purchased here.

not forgetting the hilarity of the hidden track at the end.

I miss Meursualt. Hoping Supermoon prove to be just as marvellous.

Tremendous original and cover. Funny how Meursault is finished yet Wreckless Eric just released a new album. Pretty good too.

Criminally, I don't know Meursualt at all, they clearly had good taste though. This is great.

Nice. Do also check out Eric's new album. Saw him do it live recently, he's still got it.
