Tokyo Police Club; friends of You Say Party! We Say Die!

I don't know how I didn't hear about this before today, but...

Tokyo Police Club joined by YSP!WSD! covering an old personal favourite, the Rentals' "Friends of P".

The original music video of "Friends of P" is posted below. Listening to this song more than 10 years later, I think it's easy to hypothesize why weezer's creative output shit the bed the second Matt Sharp left to focus on the Rentals full-time.

Also on the topic - Youtube just keeps hitting them out of the proverbial park. Check out this one - the Rentals joined by Damon Albarn (circa blur's hay day), performing the track on some random French talk show.
