The Adverts were one of the most decidedly empathetic of first wave of British punk bands. “Bored Teenagers,” the B-side to their classic single, “Gary Gilmore’s Eyes,” balances the time-honored trope of listless adolescence with a sense of ineffable wonder. In other words, it's the perfect track for a band as earnest and faithful to the power of guitar music as Beach Slang to take on in the opening track of their second covers mixtape, Here I Made This For You Mixtape Volume II. Beach Slang will be on tour starting this month, and are performing at Webster Hall with Minus The Bear on March 28.
Listen to the band’s cover of “Bored Teenagers” below. Here I Made This For You Mixtape Volume II will be available February 10 via Polyvinyl Records.
