Don't Fear the Reaper, the second EP from the duo of Clint Ruin (also known as J. G. Thirlwell) and Lydia Lunch, finds the pair taking on classic covers and new songs in equal measure. The 1991 disc's title track is Ruin and Lunch's surprisingly reverent take on the Blue Öyster Cult hit (the other cover sees them reconfiguring The Beatles).
