Johnny Boy – You Are The Generation That Bought More Shoes And You Get What You

I’ve heard a fair few covers of Subterranean Homesick Blues in my time but the one that appears as a b-side on this single is the best by far – pounding drums, throbbing bass, shouted vocals and the whole thing drenched in distortion, it comes as a stark contrast to the 60’s pop feel of the a-side.

The press release describes this London duo as “Sandinista-era Clash having a shootout with Phil Spector” and I couldn’t have put it better myself.
