Here's our bid to the 2011 covers competition. It's a cover of "A Friend I Call Desire" from Lament. A favorite of ours. A very underrated song.

Very nice Antilles, a re-interpretation that feels very natural. And yes, I agree - it's a very underrated tune as well as being - I think - the last appearance by Billy's ARP solo...

Never thought about that. I automatically assumed it was the Oscar, but I think you're rigth. Billy's ARP solos were one of the selling points of Ultravox to me.

Great version of one of my all time favourite Ultravox sings. An electro version rather than a direct copy.

Thanks David! Would you like me to grab it & upload with the other Covers Comp entries? If so, what section would you like to enter it into, and what's your full name / band name (if any)?

Cheers!
Cerise.

Yeah thanks Cerise. I guess it would be most suited in the Re-Cover category.

My full name is David Witkowski and the band is Antilles.
