Tipsy in Chelsea Cover Cheap Trick on New Tribute Album

Tipsy in Chelsea are a Bossa Nova-influenced cocktail jazz-pop act partially based in Atlanta – vocalist Trish Thompson is a veteran of several local indie rock bands, most notably Glass Candle Grenade in the ‘90s. (Thompson’s collaborator in Tipsy in Chelsea, multi-instrumentalist Dean Falcone, resides in New Haven, Connecticut.)

While they are in the midst of recording the follow-up to their self-titled debut album from 2012, they’ve just had a rather uncharacteristic cover song released on a new Cheap Trick tribute album called Never Surrender, just out on Zero Hour Records. The 2-CD set features 40 little known acts from around the world covering Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander and co. Tipsy in Chelsea’s version of “Stop This Game,” originally on Cheap Trick’s 1980 LP All Shook Up, is decidedly more rocked-up than their originals, but it’s not the first cover they’ve recorded. Their debut CD included pleasingly lounged-out reworkings of The Psychedelic Furs’ “Love My Way” and The 5th Dimension’s “(Last Night) I Didn’t Get to Sleep at All.”
