    I get most cover bands are money-makers, but any of you do something more self-indulgent?

    I played guitar and did lead vocals in a post-punk cover band some years back and we had the most obscure set list that was a blast to perform.

    Here was the set list:

    - Mission of Burma - Academy Fight Song
    - Fugazi - Blueprint
    - The Cure - Fire In Cairo
    - The Jam - In the City
    - Mission of Burma - That's When I Reached for My Revolver
    - Stereophonics - Doorman
    - The Clash - I Fought the Law
    - Fugazi - Provisional
    - The Neighborhoods - No Place Like Home
    - The Stranglers - (it's so obscure I can't recall the name)
    - The Pixies - This Monkey's Gone to Heaven

    Not a songbook I'd want to build a working band around, but that's a set I'd stick around to catch.

    If you can get paying gigs...

    I'm in a jazz band playing a lot of hard bop, and other good jazz. Not many decent gigs, so mostly we just play for ourselves. Fantastic musicians (and yet they allow me to hang around with them).

    We cover some Fugazi too.

    Jack White - Lazaretto and QOTSA - in my head always were well received too.
