The Clash Gets 'Sandinista!' Tribute Set for May Release
For British punk rockers The Clash, it was 1979's London Calling that became a staple in their careers, but as of May 1, it will be their follow-up record Sandinista! that will be receiving acclaim.
The Sandinista! Project is a tribute to the band's 1980 triple-album will be released on May 1 by 00:02:59 Records. The label gets it's namesake from the lyrics of "Hitsville U.K.," a song that appeared on the original Sandinista! album.
Profits from the album's sales will benefit both Amnesty International and the Joe Strummer Memorial Forest, named in memory of The Clash frontman.
