Their cover of ‘Girls Talk’ (already sort of a cover, as most people know the Dave Edmunds version rather than the Elvis Costello original) navigates the intricate wordplay and rockabilly beat. And Hoffs’s plaintive reading of Kirsty MacColl’s ‘They Don’t Know’ (also re-covered—the original came out in 1979, but it was made famous again by Tracey Ullman in 1983) is not only the strongest performance here but one of the strongest in the entire series.”
