Kyiv is Calling / Clash anthem reborn
LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) - Ukrainian punk band ‘Beton’ (Concrete) have reworked the Clash's famous 'London Calling', turning it into 'Kyiv Calling' to highlight events in Ukraine and raise funds for a resistance movement.
The three-piece band, comprising an architect, orthopaedist and businessman, recorded their reworded take on the 1979 Clash hit in a studio in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.
Any raised funds will go to the non-military operations of the Free Ukraine Resistance Movement (FURM), a publicist for FURM said, adding the Clash have agreed to donate all royalties raised to the movement's communications department. (Reuters)
