Fidlar share punk cover of Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand’ – listen

The band played their version of the Bad Seeds' song at Reading Festival

Fidlar have shared their version of Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds‘ 1994 song ‘Red Right Hand’.

The Los Angeles punk band began playing the cover while on tour in Australia earlier this month and gave their version of the track its UK debut last week at Reading Festival, as they performed on the NME/BBC Radio 1 Stage. Scroll down and click to listen.

Fidlar have previously covered Blink-182’s ‘Dammit’, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Lodi’, Warren Zevon’s ‘Carmelita’ and Fear’s ‘I Don’t Care About You’.


Fidlar recently teamed up with comedian and Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman in a very NSFW video for their single ‘Cocaine’. The video, which is being streamed via the comedy site Funny Or Die, was directed by Ryan Baxley and features Offerman urinating on people as well as on various Los Angeles landmarks. Scroll down to watch the video.

Fidlar released their debut, self-titled album earlier this year. Next month they embark on a huge North American tour with The Orwells. Last year Kate Nash collaborated with the band on a song entitled ‘AWWWKWAARRRDDD’, a new version of which is currently available.
