[Watch] Fistful of Mercy Cover Bob Dylan, PJ Harvey and The Velvet Underground
Last year I was pretty excited when heard new of a new band called Fistful of Mercy consisting of Ben Harper, Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison. Their debut As I Call You Down was made available in October via Hot Records, and you can pick yourself up a copy over here.
The band were recieved with warm open arms and their live shows were also impressive out of a recording studio environment. You can see them in a live situation here, when they performed on Conan O'Brien's late night show where they perform lead single "Father's Son" with the help of RATM's Tom Morello.
Now, Their live show's consist of their debut but they have also played numerous covers on stage. As our friends over at TwentyFourBit have pointed out they do pretty good renditions of Bob Dylan’s 1975 Blood on the Tracks “Buckets of Rain” as well as PJ Harvey’s To Bring You My Love title track, and The Velvet Underground's “Pale Blue Eyes”. Check out the Dylan cover up top and the other two after the jump.
