Earlier this year, in the before times, we were thrilled to bring you Brooklyn's Answering Machine, a pop punk band that includes two public school teachers and their grown up pop punk sound. Considering how much we love covers, we're even more thrilled to bring you their cover of The Clash's "Clampdown." It's a surprisingly stripped down acoustic cover, but Answering Machine make it work. I typically get very judgmental over Clash covers that change the original, but these folks do it right!
You can listen to Answering Machine's version of "Clampdown" below. The song is available on ATTENTION: A Black Lives Matter Compilation from Wiretap Records. It's an all covers compilation raising money for Black Lives Matter, and also includes American Television covering Operation Ivy. You can get your copy via Bandcamp.
