Ahead of Culture Abuse’s UK headline tour this month, the SF punks have released a cover version of one of their favourite songs, Police On My Back, found lurking in the set list of their current live shows.
Famously covered by The Clash, and included on their Sandinista album to keep the sing-along alive in 1980, Culture Abuse are giving this classic some love in 2018 that they recorded with FIDLAR frontman, Zac Carper and have released it today for your enjoyment here.
“We've been playing this song live for the last year,” explains frontman David Kelling. “Then right after we recorded Bay Dream we were partying with Zac (Fidlar) and thought it would be fun to try and tackle it together. Most people know it because of the Clash but the song was actually a cover by a band from the 60s called The Equals, fronted by Eddie Grant! So it's a testament to how truly good the song is! We went into the studio hungover, the morning after we played with Fidlar in LA and knocked this out, mostly live, with some wild overdubbing.”
