Sounds Like The Wedding Present Radiokeg - Wedding Present cover - 20/07/2010
Container Keg collaborated with our friends from Germany, the Woog Riots, on an electro pop cover of the Wedding Present track 'No'. This was for a tribute project to TWP's 1989 LP 'Bizarro', for which they busied themselves touring the world in 2010 to mark its 21st anniversary. This project was done under the name Radiokeg. Future solo work and collaborations are a possibility...

Radiokeg - 'No'.
