A Christmas Miracle: Yo La Tengo Cover The Clean

I love The Clean and I love Yo La Tengo so my heart is stuffed to share this rarity with you.

As many of you know, Yo La Tengo regularly plays all-request fundraisers for radio station, WFMU -- (they even put out some of those tunes as a compilation) -- and during those events the band plays everything from Gary Numan to Outkast to...The Clean.

Someone must have had the good taste to request the first track from The Clean's 1990 album Vehicle and Yo La Tengo do a remarkable job with the tune -- it sounds like they wrote it, frankly.
