Total Cover Up on Tonight’s Capital Punishment

It’s another Total Cover Up show on tonight’s Capital Punishment. We’ll play cover versions of songs originally performed by two iconic 80s alternative bands, Depeche Mode and Sisters of Mercy. There will be metal-style treatment of Goth songs, Goth-style versions of synthpop songs and the occasional straight-up delivery. With the likes of bands named Conflict, Pain, Crematory, In Flames and Cradle of Filth we can expect . . . well, something different.

I hope you can join us tonight at 9 pm Eastern, 8 pm Central and 6 pm Pacific, repeat at midnight/11 pm/9 pm and again Sunday at 9 am/8 am and 6 am.
