Album Track Listing:

2. Come on Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners

5. Camouflage, Camouflage – The Blood Brothers
6. The Willing Well III: Apollo II: The Telling Truth – Coheed and Cambria
The rascals in The Venetia Fair have blessed us with 6 brand new interpretations of classic rock tunes. While paying homage to the original artists, TVF makes sure listeners know who they’re listening to. Every song is dipped in the same crazy sauce every other TVF song is covered in. Complete with theatrical guitar riffs, commanding vocals, and the use of only the right side of a piano, the cover EP is perfect for every The Venetia Fair fan who happens to have great taste in alternative rock.
This is far more than just a “karaoke” album. The guys carefully crafted the perfect balance of respect of original songs and awareness of their own niche sound.
