Culture Abuse | "Police On My Back"
San Francisco punks Culture Abuse have released a recorded version of one of their favorite songs: “Police On My Back,” originally a ‘60s rock ballad by The Equals but immortalized by The Clash, who released a cover of the song on their renown Sandinista record. Culture Abuse aims to keep the alive, a passing of the punk torch, so to speak.
Culture Abuse has included the song in live performances for about the last year, and after meeting up and partying with FIDLAR-frontman Zac Carper, they thought it would be fun to record their own cover together.
Culture Abuse is currently on a North American-UK tour, accompanied by fellow punk contemporaries NOTHING and Gouge Away for select dates, in celebration of their sophomore L.P., Bay Dream, which came out this summer. Find a list of tour dates below.
