Franz Ferdinand and The Cribs have recorded cover versions of tracks by Canadian bands for the 'Nardwuar and The Evaporators present… Busy Doing Nothing' LP.

The Scottish band recorded a version of 'Real Thing' by Vancouver based punk outfit Pointed Sticks and The Cribs paid tribute to The Dishrags, by covering their 1980 single 'Death In The Family'.

Kate Nash also appears in the compilation with a cover of 'My Chinchilla' - a regular in her most recent tour setlist - by 1990's "cuddlecore" band Cub.
