Redemption song

While it's remarkable enough that J Mascis has played on a cover of TLC's 'Waterfalls' with Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen, it's even more remarkable that Leigh Nash of Sixpence None The Richer also featured. One wonders if the Dinosaur Jr founder ever imagined he'd collaborate with a member of a professedly Christian band, given his past as drummer for Upsidedown Cross, the doom metal band that subsequently spawned Anal Cunt and Adolf Satan amongst others...

As it turns out, Armisen has covered the track with Nash before - and on that occasion Marnie Stern and Les Savy Fav's Tim Harrington were among their accomplices.
