"Although I used to sing these tunes with many a punk on the way home from any gig drunk back in the day, man did we have the words wrong. I had to re-learn em proper now and what a way to put the new guy's on trial." - Duane Peters (U.S. Bombs)
It’s no secret that The Clash were a huge influence on the US Bombs and Joe Strummer’s death in 2002 left a permanent void in the hearts Clash and Bombs fans alike. With two ripping renditions of Clash standards “Straight To Hell” and “Death Or Glory,” the Bombs pay tribute to one of the bands that started it all. The EP will be released on 7” white vinyl, cassette, digital, and coincides with the release of the bands other EP, Hollywood Gong Show, that will be available on 7" blue vinyl, cassette, digital.
The new EPs were produced by Cris Kirkwood, executive produced by Tom Lopez, engineered by Jeremy Parker (Premier Studios in Phoenix, AZ) and mastered by Jason Livermore (The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO).
