TGU and Afrikan Boy pay tribute to the Clash!….cover version of ‘London Calling’ on new compilation album:

Published by Transglobal Underground on

TGU’s first official release of the year is a collaboration with Afrikan Boy with a version of ‘London Calling.’ It started out as something more oriental but ended up somewhere in South London via Lagos. Which doesn’t sound a lot like the Clash, but it has Mick Jones’ seal of approval so that’s ok…

It’s the first track on a compilation called, appropriately enough, London’s Calling’; a CD/ digital download of 14 exclusive re-interpretations of classic London songs from the cream of the city’s international music scene. There’s an Ethiopian style Lily Allen song, flamenco music hall, roma calypso, a lovers rock style ‘Streets of London’  and the Vibrators gone mambo….you know it makes sense.
