Los Campesinos! have always worn their influences on their sleeve.
Sarah Records, Orange Juice, Arts & Crafts... Blink-182? Apparently so. Dropping past Sirius XM Radio, the Cardiff based indie ensemble were invited to record a cover version.
Opting for something a little out of the ordinary, Los Campesinos! decided to cover Blink 182. Rampaging through 'Going Away To College' the band then posted the track online: "We're massive Blink fans, as proven by this image of the Blink tattoo Jason gave himself ON THE PALM OF HIS HAND. We hope you dig it."
Unbelievably, Blink-182's Mark Hoppus approves of the cover version.
@LosCampesinos great take on the song and i'm honored that you follow exactly 182 people as a special tribute to us.— Mark Hoppus (@markhoppus) February 20, 2014
