Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine (aka James Euringer) and Twiztid‘s Jamie Madrox have recorded a collaborative cover of Duran Duran‘s “Hungry Like The Wolf.“ You can check that out below:
Madrox said the following:
“We toured with MSI back in 1999 on ‘The Amazing Jeckel Bros Tour‘. That’s where I originally met Jimmy and the band. Being a huge fan of Duran Duran, I’ve always wanted to cover one of their songs, and when the convo of a possible collaboration came up, I had my manager pitch him the idea. To which Jimmy responded, ‘Only if it’s ‘Hungry Like The Wolf.’’ The rest is, as they say, musical history.”
“MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE AND TWIZTID CAME UP IN THIS BUSINESS AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME 20 YEARS AGO, SO YOU KNOW THIS COLLABORATION HAD TO HAPPEN. IT WAS THE PROPHECY, YO LIKE FUCKING DUNE AND SHIT. JAMIE AND HIS TEAM REACHED OUT TO ME ABOUT GUESTING VOCALS ON THIS COVER, AND I WAS LIKE, ‘YEAH, I LOVE DURAN DURAN. PLUS, I AM THE PREMIER 1980S GUEST VOCALIST. I JUST DID ‘ROCK ME AMADEUS’ WITH FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY AND ‘WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES’ AND ‘WUTHERING HEIGHTS’ FOR MY OWN PROJECT EURINGER.
BUT I SAID, ‘YOU HAVE TO LET ME ADD SOME PRODUCTION TO IT BECAUSE I LOVE DOING THAT TYPE OF STUFF.’ THEY WERE LIKE, ‘HELL, YEAH,’ AND I WENT TO TOWN AND HAD A BLAST WITH VOCALS, PRODUCTION AND MIXING. I AM A HUGE DURAN DURAN FAN, HAVING COVERED ‘GIRLS ON FILM’ WITH MSI. DURAN DURAN HAVE SO MANY GOOD GODDAMN SONGS. HOW CAN YOU COVER JUST ONE?”
