Indie Disco's aside...


Neil has done some Nyman covers over the years, including a show with the man. I once had a version of "Grisly Knife Attack" from then but it's gone now. Never mind.

How many covers of Nyman has he done? I have Time Lapse, and Knowing the Ropes. I'm led to believe there is a version Chasing Sheep is Best Left to Shepherds too. Are there any more?

Anything approaching the beauty of this on the new album would be nice, but let's not mess around.

There is indeed a Chasing Sheep, which is present on the Generation Sex CD single (the white one). Quite good, but I prefer Nyman's.

The only other one I've heard about is a version of what I know as Miranda Previsited, present simply as Miranda on The Certainty of Chance CD single (the black one). Knowing the Ropes and Time Lapse are definitely the two essentials, I much prefer the Nyman versions of the other two. That said, they're all still worth having if you can get them easily.
Hope that helps.
