Watch Kurt Vile Cover The Clash’s “Guns Of Brixton”
Audio Ammunition is a new five-part documentary about legendary UK punk band the Clash put out this week by Google Play. The series was launched to celebrate the release of massive Clash 12-disc box set Sound System which comes with a ton of goodies (and we’re giving one away for free here). On top of the doc, Google has gotten other artists to pay tribute to the band, including Kurt Vile And The Violators, who take on “Guns Of Brixton.” While they maintain much of the air of the original, their version is a lot breezier. Hear other covers from Thao And The Get Down Stay Down and Surfer Blood and watch Audio Ammunition here and check out Vile’s performance below.
