At this momentous event, 3 Daft Monkeys will be performing their ultimate ‘best of’ set list, voted for entirely by the fans, covering all their most popular songs both new and old. These songs will be performed as you’ve never heard them before, as the band will be joined on stage by some of the finest string and brass musicians in the land as their very special guests. The whole performance will be recorded ‘live’, and the CD will be available to pre-order on the night, along with a whole selection of new merchandise to mark the 20 year anniversary.
And what better place to celebrate than the place where it all began.... Falmouth!

Crimson and clover:-Tommy James and the Shondells. It’s been covered by some of the greats in rock n roll Prince, Joan jet, The velvet underground, Curtis Harding, the pretenders to name but a few. Another cover by a great band Can only be great for both the song and the band.
This thread is fantastic, what brilliant suggestions. And I'm finding a whioe load of new music,listening to them all. Cheers everyone. My latest thought was Mothers Milk (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), or Outer Space (Prodigy). x
🤔 I’m thinking it would be great to hear you cover either ‘Birdhouse In Your Soul’ by They Might Be Giants, or ‘Pencil Full Of Lead’ by Paolo Nutini... x
It would be fab if you could do Breton folk song Tri Martelod - then Day-Light could sing it with you sometime!! Yeah, cheeky I know. We're learning it for the DiaspAURA 😄😉
A track from Dylan's Desire - lots of lovely gypsy fiddle on most of those tracks. One More Cup of Coffee, Isis, Romance in Durango? 🎶
I feel love - Donna Summer - I know your Bass man can play cod I heard him do it sound checking and it was awesome - Tim as priapic love machine - oh yeah!
Aqualung. Jethro Tull. With a bit of Moondragon feal thrown you would a brill job on that.
Come as you are - Nirvana. Put a bit of 12 strings, hand drums and fiddle into that. Plus this has got to be your mantra.
I'd love to hear anything around Steve Wickham or the Waterboys, like The Pan Within or Fisherman Blues
Have you got a light boy, splodgenessabounds😀
Every time I listen to Copshawholme Fair by John Spiers and Jon Boden I think I’d love to hear your take on it!!!!
