Tim Timebomb And Friends stream “30 Pieces Of Silver”

Here’s today’s new Tim Timebomb and Friends song.  The side project of Rancid‘s Tim Armstrong, has been releasing a track a day for the last week or two and today it’s a tune called “30 Pieces Of Silver”.  Here’s what Tim had to say about it:

“Shakin’ up Orange Street- the street with a beat, in 1964 was Jamaican ska singer, and heavyweight producer Prince Buster, a musical pioneer. I love the story that Prince Buster was security for Coxsone Dodd’s ‘Downbeat” sound system. He was hired because he was a boxer. If anybody wanted to smash Coxsone’s sound system, you’d have to get through Prince Buster first. He was super influential with the 2 Tone movement — Madness “One Step Beyond”, and “Madness”, are Prince Buster Songs, plus The Specials- “Enjoy Yourself”, “Judge Dread”and “Al Capone”, to name a few–and we’re doing “Thirty Pieces Of Silver”.”

Give the song a listen here.

It looks like Hellcat Records will be releasing these recordings in the form of an album on December 25th.
