The Hives to release covers EP
The Hives have recorded a new 3-song covers EP called "Tarred and feathered" which will be released digitally on July 2 and on vinyl a week later. Check out Spinner for a sample of one cut, a cover of "Civilization's dying" by classic midwestern punks Zero Boys: http://www.spinner.com/2010/06/23/the-hives-civilizations-dying-zero-boys-cover/
If you've never heard Zero Boys I strongly recommend you grab a copy of the "Vicious circle" reissue that did last year. Essential top-10 hardcore/punk IMO; this cover not so much, but whatever.
