Culture Abuse Release “Police on my Back” Cover

Culture Abuse have released a cover version of one of their favorite songs, “Police on my Back“. Famously covered by The Clash, and included on their Sandinista album to keep the sing-along alive in 1980, Culture Abuse are giving this classic some love in 2018 that they recorded with FIDLAR frontman, Zac Carper.

We’ve been playing this song live for the last year,” explains Culture Abuse frontman David Kelling. “Then right after we recorded Bay Dream we were partying with Zac (FIDLAR) and thought it would be fun to try and tackle it together. Most people know it because of The Clash but the song was actually a cover by a band from the 60’s called The Equals, fronted by Eddie Grant! So it’s a testament to how truly good the song is! We went into the studio hungover, the morning after we played with FIDLAR in LA and knocked this out, mostly live, with some wild overdubbing.

Culture Abuse are on tour support of Bay Dream, their sophomore album, and the first full-length release for Epitaph Records. They are currently touring with Gouge Away in North America who will join them for the full UK tour.
