Canadian Freebie: The Sandinista Project Music Download

I saw this downloadable freebie over on BoingBoing, a blog which I read every day. One of the authors there has a little project, in which they got 36 performers to record one song from The Clash’s Sandinista.

The result is a rather interesting, eclectic album, which you can now download for free. Here are the artists taken from a press release:

SandinistaFeatures The Smithereens, Camper Van Beethoven, Jon Langford & Sally Timms, Amy Rigby, Katrina Leskanich (Waves), Wreckless Eric, Willie Nile, Matthew Ryan, Stew, Sex Clark Five, Sid Griffin & Coal Porters and many more.

I've just downloaded it and I'm giving it a listen. It's a very strange mix!

Ends Sunday 14th March 2010.

    This is fantastic! Worth your time for Wreckless Eric and Sex Clark Five alone

      I've seen this Clash tribute around for awhile and curious about it. I don't usually buy tributes but enjoying it just the same. I may have to send the Joe Strummer Foundation a small contribution.
