The Constantines - Fuckin' Up (Neil Young cover)

Canadian working class rockers The Constantines are big fans of Neil Young, as evidenced by the limited edition split 12" they recently released with The Unintended (members of Blue Rodeo, The Sadies and Elevator). The Cons cover 4 Young songs and The Unintended cover 4 Gordon Lightfoot songs... why is it I am suddenly feeling so patriotic? As it turns out, I still have yet to hear the actual songs on the record since I am a bit of a vinyl-phobe, but here is one Neil Young cover that apparently got cut from the track listing at the last minute. Also included below is a Constantines live rendition of "Cinnamon Girl" that I found kickin' around the net somewhere. A word to the wise: members of The Constantines have been occasionally playing gigs under the name Horsey Craze and doing a complete Neil Young set, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for upcoming shows in the Toronto area.
