In the early days of punk many bands made a reverence to classic songs in a way of interpreting them like they were part of their own sound. Following this tradition Bristol based band Idles covered Solomon Burke's Cry to Me. Idles kept the spirit of post-punk and hardcore alive with the release of their last year record Joy as an Act of Resistance. All of their songs are full of power, moving forward with enthusiasm and verve. This cover is dominated by a monster bass according to Joe Talbot's voice. Later on drums and guitars join in to a furious final.
