In late 2008, legendary rock band far announced that their original line-up would reunite for a few UK dates. Meanwhile, the band booked two LA-area warm-up dates under the pseudonym Hot Little Pony in order to deflect attention while they got used to playing together again. They even went so far as to create a MySpace page under the fake name and recorded a cover of a longtime favourite song of theirs, Ginuwine’s R&B hit - ‘Pony’. Fans in the US downloaded the track so frequently that their website traffic soared. ‘Pony’ reached heavy rotation on the biggest modern rock radio stations on the West coast. To date, the track is downloaded up to 19,000 times a day on P2P networks.
An exclusive UK release of ‘Pony’ on 1st February is limited to 500 picture disc copies available through Bright Antenna Records and the package includes a code for MP3 download of the track. Check out their acoustic version of the track here:
