The Clash - Supermega Blackmarket Clash


another clash related post for you all to hopefully enjoy comes this one inspired by the good folks at blackmarketclash.com .they published a list of artists who they said had covered clash songs and asked if anyone could send them the full list.i did a little digging through the muebles archives and using my crack team of researchers (ok my wife and one of my nephews!) managed to get most of them except police and thieves by buffalo tom.(yes i know its not a clash original but they made it their own).anyway i emailed buffalo tom and according to buffalo tom themselves they never covered the track but i did find a version they did of straight to hell so that is included in its place.some of these cover artists may surprise you and one of them almost isnt really a proper cover(if that makes sense!) but youll hear what i mean.anyhoo its over to you the listener to listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s one of the cover versions here isnt the best quality,sorry but its the only version i have.see if you can guess which one it is!

Talking of covers, Lily Allen has recently covered Straight to Hell with Mick Jones.

I haven't quite made my mind up on it yet, its quite different to the original. But if it brings a new audience to the clash then its all good.

Its on an album called War Child Heroes, I'm not sure where its available but you can listen to it on Spotify for free.
