TIM TIMEBOMB: Winding Far Down: CD

I can’t say enough about these cover songs from Rancid frontman Tim “Timebomb” Armstrong. This release of twelve tracks includes covers of The Bodysnatcher’s “Let’s Do Rocksteady,” Cock Sparrer’s “Working,” and my favorite, Bad Manners’ “Lip Up Fatty.” My only wish is that he would stick mainly to the ska and reggae tunes. His version of Bryan Adams’ “Summer of 69” is a bit of a dud.
