Michael-James Dent AKA Outlaw Boogie has been busy writing his latest EP Five Years. He can also be found playing in various outfits across the capital such as Zooz, Hunck and Yoofs. So, it's a wonder how he has the time to do anything else. But for Third Outing - Michael-James has pulled out all of the stops by taking up his guitar and covering a genius band - Spacemen 3. Here's Walkin' With Jesus by Outlaw Boogie!
As usual we gave Outlaw Boogie a choice of three covers before asking him to choose one. Here's his big three followed by his feelings of the track. By the way, this is one of the best covers we've had to date:
I was very happy to have been given the opportunity to cover Walkin' With Jesus - not only are Spacemen 3 a favourite of mine - but it really allowed me to try something a bit different. A lot of the Outlaw Boogie material was written with an emphasis on the standard formulae of pop music, so to work on a song that is incredibly free formed and focused on creating a vibe was a real pleasure. I haven't stepped very far away from the original - which might seem a little safe - but I wanted to have fun creating this version and I definitely did!
