Every good cover needs to take a song somewhere new. Thankfully, Bruce Springsteen's sparse arrangement of his ominous narrative tale State Trooper, from his album Nebraska, left Wagons ample scope to add their own unique brand of bluster to the legendary tune. This song has been a staple in the Wagons live set in recent months, slapping minds and thrashing ears across three continents, such that many demands have been made for a recorded version to be put to tape.

The video clip documents the day the gentlemen of Wagons got together at Henry's Goldview Studio atop Mount Martha on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, and laid down the track completely live as you hear it. The song is recorded without an overdub, perfectly capturing the brutal energy, the lulls and frenetic swells, which Wagons bring to the song. Enjoy Wagons reinterpretation of the constabulary classic, State Trooper.
