The Sandinista Project
is first and foremost a Clash tribute record, so it makes sense to enlist a Clash tribute band in the cause. London Calling of Chicago
has submitted a fine version of "Lightning Strikes (Not Once But Twice)" that gives the lie to all the cliches about tribute bands. It's no photocopy. It's a sharp, spirited cover by a sharp, spirited band. This ain't Beatlemania, folks, and we're very lucky to have them here. What a great groove! What a great guitar break! What a great breakdown!
You are saving up for this record, aren't you?
