The Parasites: En Homage Aux Beatles 7" (1991)




Since MRML's last Parasites post (see HERE), I've been on a real Parasites jag. This nifty little single, which features two pop-punked-up Beatles covers and a Beatlesy original by Dave "Nikki" Parasites is great reason why you need to start your own Parasites jag!




From back sleeve:
This record is a tribute to the Beatles on the twenty-fifth anniversary of their final American tour. Paperback Writer was the Beatles last number one hit before their concert retirement. Both Paperback Writer and I Feel Fine were performed at the final Beatles concert August 29th, 1966 at San Francisco's Candlestick Park.


Tracklist
    Love Me Too     2:40    
    I Feel Fine     2:24    
    Radio Ad     0:39    
    Paperback Writer     2:49

  2. Those Beatles covers are well executed but it's "Love Me Too" that blows me away. Oh perfect, perfect power pop how I love thee!

  5. I was never a Parasites fan until my buddy played me the Parasites Ramones album. Then I grudgingly appreciated what they do. It's just that they do so damn much of it!

  6. Glad to see them featured! I've been a fan for years and already own everything, but this one is a must for "Love Me Too". The cover of the girl screaming is a shot from the "Hard Day's Night" film.

  8. There is a spelling mistake : "en homMage aux Beatles" takes two m's. By the way does anyone know why the title is in french ?

    Thanks for le correction!
    As for the title choice, I laways assumed it was because "A Tribute to the Beatles" sounds so much lamer.
