As a supplement to the recent reissues of classic Clash albums, Google Play has gathered together four contemporary musicians who draw influence from the legendary English punk band for a series of cover songs. Kurt Vile & The Violators contributed their take on 1979′s “The Guns of Brixton” to the effort, captured in the video below and compiled alongside covers by Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Surfer Blood and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor. Check out the Philly band’s rendition and get limited-time free download of the MP3 here. Vile plays Union Transfer on October 26th; tickets and information can be found here.
