This video was shot by Beirut.com during Slutterhouse’s album launch concert for ANOTHER LIE. The event was organized by The Basement and was part of the C U NXT SAT parties.
When I decided to include some covers in our live set, the first song that came to my mind was Andy McCoy’s “Strung Out”. When I was 18, I used to listen to this song up to 40 times a day, because it made me happy. The challenge was to turn the Finnish rock guitar player’s song into a Slutterhousy thing; you decide if we pulled it off or not!
In any case, we have performed this song 3 times so far with Slutterhouse, and each time we did, I couldn’t help but tearing sometime after the first chorus. That’s how much this song means to me.
Enjoy both versions below: Andy McCoy’s original version, recorded in 1995. And Slutterhouse’s own live version, in Beirut, last December 2010.
Being on stage with Fritz Helder last Saturday night was a fucking blast. The club was beyond packed, the crowd was loud, hot, magical. Thank you all for coming and for a great night.

During their album launch concert in Beirut, Rama’s Whisper invited Slutterhouse lead signer Rabih Salloum on stage to sing an old Nazareth song called “Hair of the Dog”. Rabih Salloum from Slutterhouse and Ramy and Riad from Rama’s Whisper used to play that song back in 2000 in a rock n roll band called Kynslinn Tobacco.
