Starfucker's Josh Hodges Releases Album of Covers

Posted by Josh Gross on Tue, Jul 17, 2012 at 3:13 PM

Portland electro-darling Starfucker is known for its dance beats, synth wizardry and dreamy good looks more than its classic rock songwriting. But now you can get a bit of both.

Josh Hodges, the band's architect, recently rereleased a solo album of Starfucked covers of artists like Bruce Springsteen, Paula Abdul, Elton John and Electric Light Orchestra.

The album, Sexton Blake Plays the Hits, is available on limited edition vinyl through Polyvinyl Records on Soundcloud.

Get a tasty taste below.

I can't believe that such a vulgar name would even be allowed in print. We as a people are surely going downhill ....... and quickly I'm afraid. The pendulum has swung way too far to the left....

It's the pornification of America. What was once considered obscene is now mainstream and teachable in preschool.

Hey, guys. I know that digital downloads are waaaay more popular than "albums" these days, but that does NOT make it a vulgar or obscene term. You are clearly not the kind of people who should be reading an alternative weekly paper, least of all the section on music, if you can't tolerate something as benign as the term "album." And I, for one, think we *should* teach preschoolers about "albums," maybe even have a Vinyl Appreciation Week so they can learn about the history of recorded music. And maybe, someday, intolerant folks like you won't be so uptight about "albums," and the other terms we use when discussing music in our alternative weekly papers. Geebuzz.

I'm not just talking about Starfucker, I'm talking about my LIFE, I can't seem to get that through to you. I'm not just talking about one person, I'm talking about everybody. I'm talking about form. I'm talking about content. I'm talking about interrelationships. I'm talking about God, the devil, Hell, Heaven.

Do you understand... FINALLY?

What happened to the talented people who had to have talent, like John Denver, The Beetles, etc???? WITH THEM went all the kindness, gentleness, etc.... THEY DID NOT HAVE TO DISPLAY UGLY NAMES, ETC. TO SHOW TALENT. I am sick of the tatooed people from head to toe, names like this and the rest! LADY GAGA..... IS CACA..... YUK.... THANK GOD Madonna is no where to be seen...... that is talent? Oh, please!
