It's Nearly Africa
(XTC cover)

Every so often, Songfight people hold a Coverfight and cover pop songs. In this case it was a secret-santa situation, xmas 2003. I had the pleasure of recording XTC's classic It's Nearly Africa for Jim of Seattle while hacking my lungs out with some sort of flu. Perhaps it helped!

Thanks to George Demarest, for a fabulous trumpet solo intro and the loops that supply much of the rhythm track.
