"Soviet Dissonance was Simon Melroy as the Darby Crash-ish Vocalist (thanx for that ref. I'm honored!); David Murray on Guitar and sometimes Drums; Dave's brother (or was it the other way around?) John Murray playing a solid Bass; and Paul McCue whith the Drum action (Dave and Paul switched it up for a few songs, but since that was the arrangement in Stiff Legged Sheep, we wanted to keep things as diverse as pos.) --Simon Melroy"

My favorite Soviet Dissonance song was a cover they did by Madness. "Bed And Breakfast Man" has an awesome bass hook in it and they would sometimes play it more than once at a gig. Also, one time at the Murray's basemant, I remember they did this Crucifucks song *several* times. "Democracy Spawns Bad Taste" I think it was.

Yeah, that was one of my favorite covers that they did also. My very fave cover they did was "Breaking Point" by the Subhumans.
