Humpday Covers: The Very Best

Ok so its Humpday again, meaning that its time for another installment on some covers.
You may think that because of the title of the post that this time I am going to post what I consider the best covers...
Thats not the case.

This is a post about the group called "The Very Best".

If you haven't heard of them yet, your really in luck.

Here is a brief bio courtesy of the Green Owl:

Esau Mwamwaya was born in Mzuzu in Malawi, East Africa. He grew up in the capital, Lilongwe, where he played drums in various bands such as Masaka Band. He was a good friend of the legendary Evison Matafale and they played together for several years before he was killed in Malawi police custody in 2003. In 1999 Esau Mwamwaya moved to London, England has until recently run a second-hand furniture store in Clapton, East London. Esau's shop was on the same street as Radioclit's old studio, and after the Radioclit boy's bought a bike from Esau they invited him to one of their house warming parties They made friends and started working on music together. Two years later and the project has gotten it's name The Very Best.

This track is off their album, Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit are the Very Best, this can be found free online at the groups myspace. And because they are named The Very Best, I'll post two cover tracks off of their album.
