Projekt Ich - feat Richard Pustina
Jesus doesn´t want me for a sunbeam
This time, Ulf was able to get the vocal support of Richard Pustina aka Rick Rad (Radio DCS, Ottoextrem, Boyracer Records) from Vienna / Austria who already participated in the song “Your Life Is A Lie” from the latest album “Freedom For All”.
"Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam" is a song originally recorded by the Scottish alternative band The Vaselines from Glasgow and is considered a parody of the old Christian children's song "I'll Be A Sunbeam" with the opening line "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam" (Source: Wikipedia). The song was featured on the band's “Dying For It” EP in 1988 released on 53rd & 3rd Records.
The late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain loved The Vaselines' music and repeatedly cited them as one of his biggest influences. Not least because of this, Nirvana covered several songs by this band ("Son Of A Gun" and "Molly's Lips"). "Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam" can be found as "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam" on the wonderful album “MTV Unplugged in New York”; it was precisely this version that inspired Ulf to cover this song.
