No Need For The Black Maria

Guns Of Brixton- three times, as The Fugees didn’t say. A reader called jimdoes has been in touch and kindly sent me two more Clash covers, including this version of Paul Simonon’s Guns Of Brixton by Arcade Fire. Taken from an appearance on BBC2’s The Culture Show it’s a brooding, slow building version, but well worth your time. Jimdoes would like me to point you in the direction of his internet radio station

I loved the first Arcade Fire album, it seemed so different and otherwordly. Then they became superstars.
