THE AFGHAN WHIGS have recorded a version of THE CLASH‘s ‘Lost In The Supermarket’ (originally on ‘London Calling‘) for inclusion on a forthcoming Clash tribute album, set for release next year.
A spokesman for Epic, who will release the tribute album, told NME: “We haven’t got a date because we’re still waiting for a release schedule for the Clash live album, that will be coming out on Columbia. I can’t see it coming out before Summer of 1999 at the very earliest.”
Other contributors to the album include TRICKY, LEONARD COHEN, TOM WAITS, PRIMAL SCREAM, KORN, ICE CUBE, RANCID and NO DOUBT.
