The group Hinds cover of “Spanish Bombs” was THE HOBBLEDEHOY’s favorite moment of the Song For Joe tribute. As one viewer remarked during the show, “Hinds are the Spanish bombs!”
The Clash song “Spanish Bombs” recalls the civil war that raged in Spain from 1936 to 1939.
The Hinds said in a statement: “We’ve always loved doing covers. Maybe because that’s how we started, or maybe because there are already so many great songs in the world that we wish we had written ” .
“The Clash have always been my mother’s favorite band… so it’s always nice to connect the generations through music. As Spaniards, we are not used to being ‘yelled at’ in songs, like in New York or London. The Clash wrote a song about our own civil war while honoring us. We recorded this cover on our last day in the studio, practically live. “
