The Bloody Five Take on a Canadian Punk Rock Classic

One of the finest punk rock songs to ever come out of Canada was “New York City” by the Demics, a London-based band lead by the late Keith Whittaker.  From the moment it appeared on the Talk’s Cheap EP in 1979, it was been a alt-rock classic.

Kudos then to The Bloody Five for resurrecting the song and showing it the proper reverence.
