Solar Twins Cover The Clash With Rock The Casbah

Well The Solar Twins that little known one hit wonder band from England that split up just after releasing one album did have a good enough song to have a post on Although I have to say this version of Rock The Casbah is pretty darn good. Don’t get me wrong The Clash are awesome at that song but this Solar Twins is a great electronica interpretation. Released back in 1999 on Madonna’s Maverick Records Solar Twins self titled album is chock full of electronica, downtempo, drum and bass and ambient styles and this Rock The Casbah and Swayambhu are the standout cuts on the album. I guess it was good enough to end up on the Brokedown Palace soundtrack that was also released also in 1999. The rest of the album is just mediocre.

Check out both versions of Rock The Casbah below.
