Andrew Jackson Jihad covers Stone Temple Pilots

Andrew Jackson Jihad covers Stone Temple Pilots

Andrew Jackson Jihad is never one to tackle things straight-on. The band’s history is full of skewed takes on songs about love and the human condition, with many of them featuring lines that would surely stop first time listeners in their tracks. It’s only fitting that the band would take on Stone Temple Pilots’ “Plush”–from its 1992 debut Core–and twist it into something uniquely Andrew Jackson Jihad. The band is currently supporting its fifth album, the excellent Christmas Island, which is out now on Side One Dummy. And yes, this is the second Undercover of the week; we started so late that we’re going to need to double-up a couple of times to get done before Christmas.
