The Skullers cover Richard Hell’s ‘I’m Your Man’ for charity

The Skullers I'm Your Man

THE SKULLERS

The Skullers (singer and guitarist Jack Skuller and bassist and backing vocalist Luigi Sardi) reached deep into the classic-punk catalog for their new charity single, covering “I’m Your Man.” The isn’t the Leonard Cohen song or the Wham! song, but an outtake from Richard Hell & the Voidoids’ 1977 debut album Blank Generation that was used later for the B-Side of “The Kid With the Replaceable Head,” and that was also later included on the album’s CD reissue.

You can listen to The Skullers’ version below.

“My mother was a huge fan of Richard Hell and introduced me to the song,” said Skuller in a press release. “When we perform ‘I’m Your Man’ at shows, it has become an audience favorite. It was an easy choice for us to release this mesmerizing blues-punk piece of magic as a summer single.”

Proceeds will benefit Career Gear, an organization that helps men in need enter or re-enter the workforce.

The Skullers will perform with Walter Lure & the Waldos, Lenny Kaye, The Carvels NYC and others at the Johnny Thunders Birthday Bash at The Bowery Electric in New York, July 15 at 6:30 p.m. Thunders, who died in 1991 at the age of 38, was a co-founder of the New York Dolls as well as, briefly, Hell’s bandmate in the New York-based band, The Heartbreakers.
