With new material very much on the horizon, it’s no surprise that North Coast singer-songwriter Tony Wright AKA VerseChorusVerse is a bit of a lifelong Nirvana fanatic. With his music-making nom de plume deriving from the legendary trio’s non-album track of the same name, Wright has gone one further and released a striking, decidedly lo-fi cover of a song that they too covered (and thereby made famous the world over): the Meat Puppets‘ prophetic ‘Lake of Fire’.

With the aforementioned original studio material set for release in the coming months, Wright’s rendition is the lead track of a new collection of home-recorded covers – Hittest Greats – including takes on songs by John Denver, Nick Cave and Bob Dylan.
