Greg Macpherson covers The Clash!

Winnipeg guitarist/singer/song-writer/label head/community-organizer Greg Macpherson has been releasing albums and touring this world for over a decade. Imagine a dramatic splicing of Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg John K. Sampson (of the Weakerthans) and Joe Strummer and you'll just have a thumbnail sketch of this strikingly original figure.

To read my review of his show last week at the West End Cultural Centre go to The Big Takeover.

  4. Thank you for sharing, his take on"bank robber"is rather different and reminiscent of early Billy Bragg.
    Looking forward to hear more.
