The Pains of Being Pure At Heart - Jeremy
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will release a new 7" single via Slumberland records, which features two covers from their favorite bands, The Magnetic Fields and East River Pipe. Hear the Magnetic Fields cover of 'Jeremy' over at their site and here is what Peggy has to say on the Magnetic Fields...
“The Magnetic Fields, for me, were part of an immature phase. I know that has negative connotations, but in hindsight, I don’t think I could have fallen harder for any other band at any other time in my life. I had the kind of naive scrawl-their-name-on-my-notebook fixation that any young teenybopper would have had, except back then, I didn’t have the luxury of the internet to find out much about my favorite band, and I didn’t live in a big city where I might hope to catch a glimpse of my teen idols as they rolled through town. There wasn’t even a fan club for me to join. The Magnetic Fields were a band without context."
