THE ULTIMATE BEATLES’ COVER VERSIONS, – PART 3!

BONUS TRACKS!!

These versions didn’t quite make it onto my list, as I only allowed myself one cover version per song. However, I do feel they are worth inclusion in some format, so, if this collection were a box set, these tracks would be on a bonus disc!

2/12.

“But if the Judges do get that drill bit, I WILL return!”, promised Dredd,

“And I will track you all down!

And I will find you!

And then I will hunt all your families down!

Believe me, Grimm and Bean are Drokking CHOIRBOYS, compared to me when I”m crossed!”

Smithy gulped.

Then Dredd wheeled his bike into position, Smithy and Ben hit the big red buttons and made their way back to the van with Tex, leaving the back door of the van slightly open for Flash, who was remaining behind to retrieve his bit, so that they could make a quick getaway!

Dredd had placed the bit on the ground and braced himself for the experience!

Flash couldn’t really see what was going on from his side of the road, as the distortion caused by the electromagnetic field made visibility between the two electromagnets too distorted. Neither could he hear much through the loud humming it generated.

Which was fortunate.

Because, unbeknown to him, Grimm had come surfing in from the other side on a confiscated skyboard and had dived off it onto Dredd, yelling, “DREDD!! – I’LL HANG YA MESELF!”

“Flippin’ ‘eck! – It’s looks like Dredd is in two places at the same time, now, in there!”, thought Flash.

Then, there was a blinding blue/white flash and everything in the field was effortlessly sucked through to the other side. Flash hit the black buttons and could see his drill bit on the ground, he dashed in and picked it up, ran to the van, dived in the back, banged on the side and yelled, “Right go! – Let’s get out of here!”

And the van manouvered into position and got the Hell out of there, to find a different way into the city centre, to join their revolution!….

Meanwhile, Dredd had barely noticed the crossover, so smooth was the transition. Neither Judges had passed out, and both were now struggling with each other. Dredd went for his Lawgiver, but Grimm knocked it out of his hands and then went for his, but Dredd kicked it out of his! There then ensued a truly vicious fist fight, both men literally fighting for their lives, neither would back down, and they rolled about, kicking and a-gauging in the mud and the blood!

“I really can’t remember when I’ve fought tougher men”, thought Dredd, “he kicks like a mule and he bites like a crocodile!”

Suddenly the fight was halted by a couple of clicks and a voice, saying, “All right, boys, break the party up!” And they looked up to see a couple of Lawgivers pointing down at them! But, Dredd recognised that voice, – it was Hershey, there with her latest rookie, Danno. When she recognised Dredd’s bloody face, she said, “Dredd, WHERE have you been?”

“To Hell and back”, replied Dredd, “What happened to Metal Mickey?”

“Burnt out!”, she answered, “left stood there, next to your wrench!”

“Who’s your friend?”, asked the rookie.

“Sick creep ain’t no friend of mine,” said Dredd, “Book him, Danno! – Life on Titan!”

“You can’t do this to me!”, protested Grimm, “I am a Judge! I have never broken any law in my life!”

“IIIIIIIIII AM THE LAW, HERE!”, bellowed Dredd into Grimm’s face!

“And I say you’ve broken it!

Let Justice Be Served.

Amen!”

 

AMEN.

2/11.

wooden structures went up, like a giant bonfire night! This only added to all the chaos in the Halls, alarm bells were going off everywhere and amongst all this, Dredd was easily able to slip out again unnoticed, and he hopped back on his bike again and headed off towards Sector House 39, where he had a secret assignation.

As he was making his way there, the riots were getting so out of control that reinforcements were sent for from all the sector houses as back-up, so that by the time he arrived at 39, it was practically deserted. There parked near to the cargo bay was a removals van, with “ACME REMOVALS” printed on the left side.

[N.B. On the right side of the van, part of the first ‘M” had peeled off and it now looked like “ACNE REMOVALS”!]

Dredd parked next to the van and went over to the van, where he saw Tex, Ben and Flash sitting in the front.

“Where’s Frank Spencer?”, Dredd asked.

“If you mean Smithy, he’s in the back of the van!”, said Tex.

“Have you got the drill bit?”, Dredd asked the trio.

“Got it here, man!”, answered Flash.

“What’s going on in the city?”, blurted Ben, “All the Judges took off, like it was an emergency!”

“The people are revolting!”, said Dredd,

“Now, I’m going in to open the cargo bay doors, when I give you the signal, back the truck up to the dock!”

Bold as brass, Dredd marched into the sector house, made his way to the cargo bay, where the transporter equipment was still standing from the previous day, and opened the metal door and beckoned the van over. The three guys got out the van, tapped on the side, and the van doors slid up and Smithy sprung out onto the dock, ready for action!

“Climb up here,” Dredd said to the other three and help us load this stuff onto the truck, but first let’s move this heavy workbench behind the inner doors. We don’t want any nosey parkers coming in!”

Between the five of them, they then loaded the three items into the van, Smithy got in in too and pulled down the door.

“Right get in and follow me!”, ordered Dredd, who jumped on his bike and set off for the spot where he had crossed over.

When they were about half-way there, Dredd temporarily halted the truck, stopped his bike, dismounted and fired a high-ex. charge at the road itself, completely blowing it up.

“Try riding through that, creeps!”, Dredd thought to himself.

They then continued the journey and when they got there, the five of them positioned the equipment as per Dredd’s instructions, he was filling them all in what each person had to do, as they did so. He told Tex to park the truck right across the road to prevent any traffic that was trying to get into town from getting through. Before he went into position, he stopped dead and addressed the quartet.

“Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once….”

“Pardon?”, nervously joked Smithy!

Dredd scowled at him and continued, “The Judges must not get their hands on this drill bit! THAT’S how important it is! One of you needs to stay with the equipment until I’ve passed through and retrieve the bit! Or if I just pass out and DON’T go through, still go in and retrieve the bit! It must not fall into their hands! Then get out of here! Don’t get caught!”

“I’ll do it!”, said the fearless Flash, “Don’t worry, man, I won’t let you down!”

“If I don’t go through, I’ll take my chances in the Rad-Lands!”, said Dredd.

thumbing towards the lanky one, ” the rough-looking one is Flash, our warlord and the one wearing glasses is Ben!”

“Peace, man!”, Ben said to Dredd.

“There ain’t no such thing!”, replied Dredd,

“Well, I ain’t plannin’ on stickin’ around!”, Dredd said to Smithy, “but if you kids help me out, I’ll bring about some changes all right! I’ve got the means here to throw a spanner in the sickos’ works!”, he promised, tapping his Lawgiver. You get me what I want and I’ll take out Gallows’ End and Hell’s Kitchen, as well! Then, it’ll be up to you guys to start your revolution!”

“What do you need?”, asked Smithy.

“Well, first I need a truck, with you four in it tomorrow morning parked outside Sector House 39’s cargo bay, and I’ll need you four to help send me on my way!”

“We can get that!”, said Smithy, “Tex’s dad is in the removals business. We can borrow his removals van!”

“The only other thing I need is a piece of zontonium!”, Dredd continued,

“I’ve got a zontonium drill-bit”, said Flash, “amateur robotics is a hobby of mine!”

“Bring that along with you tomorrow and you got yourselves your glorious day!”,  said Dredd.

As they started to go their separate ways, Smithy stopped, turned around and said, “Dredd?….”

“What?”, asked Dredd, stopping and turning round himself.

“Power To The People!”, said Smithy, whilst raising a clenched, black gloved fist.

“I preferred ‘Instant Karma!’ “, replied Dredd, whilst turning front again and carrying on walking!

[N.B. The final panel on this page would show Smithy, looking puzzled, with a ? above his head!]

Dredd was out and about well before 6 a.m. and had ridden down to the ReSyk / Synthi-Food Plant and let loose a high-incendiary charge right into the centre of the building, paused to make sure that it did catch fire, and, once it was ablaze, hopped back on his bike again and headed back for the Grand Halls. It wasn’t long before the building had turned into an inferno, – a foul-smelling crematorium!

Dredd parked his bike on the right-hand side of the Halls and quietly went inside again, whilst all the Judges were deep in a food-filled slumber, and made his way to his quarters. It wasn’t long before pandemonium broke loose and Dobie poked his head around the door and shouted, “Come on, Dredd! We’re needed! Synthi-Food’s on fire!”

“You go on ahead, I’ll follow you down!”, said Dredd, convincingly.

As all the Judges were rushing out of the building, Dredd rushed out with them, but, in all the chaos, went down the right-hand side of the Halls, where his bike was parked and waited for all the Judges to tear off towards the fire. After a few minutes, the exterior of the Halls were Judge-free, but quite a crowd of passer-bys had gathered, curious what all the commotion was about, as it was about 6-30 by then. He strode down to the outside of the giant larders and let a high-ex. charge fly at the wall. There was a huge explosion and there was food EVERYWHERE! Dredd picked up a whole, cooked chicken and tossed it into the middle of the crowd, saying, “Grub’s up!”, before jumping back on his bike and speeding down towards the back of the building and up around the left-hand side, towards the entrance again. Meanwhile, inside the Halls, the remainder of the Judges had made their way to the other side to see what the explosion was, only to find a full-scale riot in progress!

The very smells of real food had driven the citizens berserk! It had whipped them all into a feeding frenzy! They had reverted back to savages! All memories of law-abiding had been completely wiped from their minds. The Judges tried their best to quell the riots, but failed miserably. They were overcome by the sheer weight of numbers.

Whilst all this was going on, Dredd had no trouble nipping back inside again and he swiftly made his way right through the centre of the Halls and out into the courtyard, where he despatched another high-incendiary right into the heart of the gallows and it wasn’t long before all the
