Please Apply Additional Pressure

At some point during (or perhaps prior to) the recording process of the otherwise decent Women As Lovers, Jamie Stewart decided to invite Michael Gira over for this rather unfortunate cover of Under Pressure. Complete with gross sounding saxophone (see here on why the sax should often be avoided) the song raises a rather simple question: why?

And to compensate for that rather unfortunate infliction, see King David himself on how to cover songs well.
