In 1981, Joe Strummer and Mick Jones from the Clash recorded a version of "Rock The Casbah" with the Beat's Ranking Roger on vocals. That version was never released, and it remains in the Clash's archive. A remix of the version featuring Roger will be released next month on an EP benefiting Joe Strummer's non-profit organization Strummerville. According to Roger, Mick Jones gave him permission to release a remixed version of the track and even supplied him with stems from the original recording.  Roger then hooked up with producing duo Dopegrinders, who remixed the track. 

The remix of "Rock The Casbah" will be the lead track on the five song EP titled Rock The Casbah - An EP By Ranking Roger, which will be released next month to coincide with the 12th anniversary of Joe Strummer's death.  Pre-order the EP exclusively through Pledge Music (100% of the money raised will be donated to Strummerville).

Stream "Rock The Casbah" (Ranking Roger vs Dopegrinders) below, and find out more about the Strummerville non-profit organization here. A video of Ranking Roger explaining the project is also available to view below via Gigwise.
