Thanks, TIRC-STL mailing list. Here's a link to the Web site violentandcrazy.com, which is the home base of the Violent Femmes covering Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy." Stream it at MySpace, and you can also download it at iTunes.
I can't say I've given much of a hoot about the VF in a very long time (a show they played at my college in 1998, where the band was surly and disinterested, at best, turned me off), but vocalist Gordon Gano had a great solo record out a few years ago (Hitting the Ground) and this cover is pretty nifty, all lounge-y and such.
