Cover Friday: Terminus City

Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Terminus City.

It’s time to serve up another cover version of ‘Kids in America’. There are many rock- and punk-oriented versions of that song, but the one by Terminus City sounds particularly aggressive. The drums and guitars are quite decent, there’s a nifty bassline in there, and there are rushed, shouted vocals.

There isn’t a lot information about this American punk band. It was apparently started by Frank Kocsis-Szucs, who recruited Wes (bass), Chris (drums) and Guillermo (guitar). Their debut album, released in 2000, was called ‘Justice isn’t always fair’. Three years later they released a split album together with the band No holds barred, which features this cover version among self-penned tracks like ‘Set me free’, ‘Too stupid’ and ‘Stinkin’ world’. Not a very happy outlook on life, then.
