Florence and the Machine go all Buddy Holly – Flux Magazine

Florence and the Machine go all Buddy Holly

Florence and the Machine doing Buddy Holly’s classic ‘Not Fade Away’. Now there’s a strange brew. It’s all part of a tribute album to the bespectacled icon himself.

It’s also got contributions from such artists as Julian Casablancas, Patti Smith, Modest Mouse, Lou Reed and The Black Keys (plus Paul McCartney but let’s brush over that). So a unlikely bunch of fellow tributees I would say. But very intriguing to see what they all come up with using Holly’s pure, paired down, guitar pop tunesmithery. Buddy Holly would be 75-years-old on September 7th of this year. Sadly, of course, he died in 1959 aged just 22. Rave On Buddy Holly is a nod of respect from some of today’s rock/pop acts to one of the most influential of them all.

Anyway we’ve got the video here so you can have a watch and listen to what Florence and the Machine did with their track.

The album is available July 4th 2011 From Fantasy Records /Concord Music Group
