Hinds – Spanish Bombs

Madrid based Hinds have released their version of Spanish Bombs originally performed by The Clash. The song, which was written by Joe Strummer in 1979, deals with the subject of The Spanish Civil War including the death of Federico García Lorca as well as its aftermath which included the ETA bombing campaigns of the 1970s.

Given that the reverberation of the conflict of the civil war is still being felt in Spain it’s a brave track to cover. As for the band’s interpretation, they mellow the punk attitude to some extent and give us a raw sounding lo-fi track which they sing in their native language. ¡No pasarán!

It’s available digitally from Lucky Number.
