Ceremony joined us for Undercover way back in 2012, with a high energy cover of Violent Femmes “Kiss Off.” This time, it’s Oasis’ “Rock ‘N’ Roll Star.” The original is like a crazy night on the town, when the drink (and maybe other stuff) has just started flowing, and the world seems ready to be conquered. Ceremony’s version feels like the next morning—a haze of thoughts and memories seen through the fog, with a bit of Goth-ness thrown in for good measure. But sometimes a good comedown is exactly what’s required.
