K ronomyth 4.2: TíYOKO DOMINONO. This is actually a cover of a cover; Fats Domino by way of John Lennon, who did a similar version of ATAS on his Rock Ďní Roll album. Some pretty subtle homage, that, but clearly these guys were listening to John Lennon a lot more than Fats Domino. I love Cheap Trick, but they have to be one of the shittiest cover bands on the planet: Magical Mystery Tour, Donít Be Cruel, donít get me started. This one at least rocks a little, although somebody did a butcher job on the edit. The flip side is an old album track, which is appreciably clever when you recall that ELO used to do the same thing with their singles.
