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:
Features 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!
