Hear Twin Peaks Cover The Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers"

Twin Peaks  (yes, the band) have a live double album called Urbs in Horto coming out on Friday and to give a last-second preview of the record, the garage rockers have released their take on The Rolling Stones’ country-fried classic “Dead Flowers.”

The Chicago group’s cover of the Sticky Fingers tune before a sold-out audience is much speedier and more raucous than the original song, and without any of Mick Jagger’s honkytonk affectations, but is still a totally engrossing effort. Even with Twin Peaks going warp-speed, the reference to being in the “basement room with a needle and a spoon” sticks out like a poorly covered track mark.

Listen to Twin Peaks’ take on “Dead Flowers,” plus Peaks and Stones performances from the Paste Cloud, and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates, as well, all below. Find full details on Urbs in Horto here.
