about

The 4th and 6th singles off of "Born In The USA", covered by Coltrane Motion and released for free online. After hearing Bruce's cover of a Suicide song ("Dream Baby Dream"), Michael attempted to invert the formula, drowning two of his favorite Springsteen songs in the droning keyboards and mechanical beats that Messrs. Vega & Rev pioneered. But the result doesn't sound much like Suicide or Springsteen - "I'm Going Down" has been slowed, distorted and delayed to a shoegazer crawl, while "I'm On Fire" crackles and bursts with a loose, untethered energy, trading the original's minimalism for a wall of girl-group drums, driving organ and thundering guitars more akin to "Born to Run" (or, well, Coltrane Motion..)
