Omnigone Covers Link 80’s Song “Nothing New”

Earlier this month, Bad Time Records announced a unique split 7″ slated for release on June 5th. The four song EP pairs Philadelphia’s Soul-Ska outfit Catbite with the East Bay’s newest Ska-Punk trio Omnigone, which features members of the beloved late 90s Ska-Core band Link 80.

To celebrate their new found e-friendship, each band decided to cover one another and put their personal touch on it. Additionally, Omnigone recorded an updated version of Link 80’s “Nothing New” while Catbite recorded a cover of “White Riot,” the classic tune by The Clash.

Omnigone has teamed up with The Fest to present their new and improved version of “Nothing New.” The band will be appearing at the beloved annual Punk festival this October (don’t fuck this up for so many of us, Corona!) so get familiar with the song now so you can shout along.

Omnigon’s Adam Davis had the following to say about the new version of the song:

“One of the first questions we got about Omnigone was ‘Are you going to play Link 80 songs?’ Everyone knows ‘Nothing New’ as a Link 80 song, but it was originally a Blast Bandits song, Barry’s old Ska-Punk band. I have a cassette tape of early Blast Bandits songs that I’ve nearly worn out from years of abuse. ‘Nothing New’ is one of my all time favorite Ska-Punk songs. Barry and I have been playing the song for years. Now it’s an Omnigone song.”
