Last year before the release of Offend Maggie, Deerhoof asked their fans to cover their new single before it came out. They putting some sheet music online and posted the mp3s. It was especially surprising since the band's musicianship always seemed studio-driven and somewhat slapped together (not meant as a negative!) A better idea on "paper", but the covers have their moments. Also, like Kutiman, something that couldn't have be done in previous decades.
