Spanish Bombs: Tropical Tribute to the Clash April 28th

Dont Miss This! In a highly-anticipated world-premiere concert, appealing to fans of both The Clash and Latin music in general – the legendary band’s repertoire will be brought to life tomorrow night in London by guest vocalists and musicians from some of the hottest Latin bands on the planet.

In the late seventies and early eighties a band from London called to the Latin world and now that world is answering back. The Clash of Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simenon and Topper Headon had a huge influence on a generation of musicians in the Spanish speaking world through their sound, attitude and internationalism. From Buenos Aires to Barcelona via all the urban centres in between. Tonight’s special show features Clash repertoire reinterpreted through a Latin filter and the sound that finally came back from the faraway towns.

Among many guest stars will be:

* Ruben Albarran of Mexico’s finest Cafe Tacuba.

* Tex/Mex-inspired rocker Alejandro Escovedo, whose musical and geographical journeys have taken in punk rock, country and string quintets

*Amparo Sanchez of Amparanoia, winner of a BBC Radio 3 Award for World music in 2005

*Blanquito Man of New York Latin Ska pioneers King Chango

* Jonaz of Mexico’s electronic funsters Plastilina Mosh

* Bruno Garcia and the Cuban crew from France’s mighty Sergent Garcia

* Moyenei, a stunning Mexico-based singer of Reggaeton and Dance Hall.

Also featuring a 15-piece band, this special show is being assembled by producer and DJ Toy Hernández (who has worked with Shakira, Café Tacuba, Manu Chao, Eminem, Cypress Hill, and many others) and keyboardist Mike Smith (who has worked with the Clash’s Paul Simenon in The Good, The Bad and The Queen, as well acting as musical director for MD for Africa Express, Monkey and Honest Jons Chop Up).
