James Dean Wells And Those Mockingbirds Cover R.E.M.

“Happy Rapture Friday!” wrote James Dean Wells, front man of The Gay Blades, in a Facebook post earlier this afternoon.  “Me and Adam [Bird, guitarist and vocalist of Montclair’s Those Mockingbirds] got weird in the wee hours of the night to bring you this little sing along ditty.”

The cover is, quite appropriately, of R.E.M.’s classic Lenny Bruce injected tale of Armageddon, “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine).”  Those Mockingbird’s Taylor Anne Daines also provides backing vocals on the track, which can be download for free below.

Question: If the world were going to end tomorrow, what would your last song be?  Feel free to comment and discuss below.

And if the world is still here, be sure to check out James Dean Wells and The Obvious at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch on Sunday.
