1st September 2015: Rachid Taha – Rock El Casbah

Language – Arabic

Translation – Rock The Casbah

Interesting story.  I read that The Clash met this chap in Algeria, he gave them this song, they had a massive hit with it, and then he covered what was essentially his own song.  I hope he got royalties from The Clash version, anyway…
