Tim Timebomb and Friends are streaming a stripped down version of “Battering Ram” off Rancid’s 1992 self-titled EP. Here’s what Tim had to say about this version:
Times have changed since Rancid originally tracked this one in the summer of 1992. Everything was all word of mouth back then, like where to play, what bands and records to check out… and where to record. All we did around that time was play Gilman Street, play house parties and hang out on Telegraph Avenue everyday. This is a stripped down acoustic version of “Battering Ram”.
Check it out here.
Tim Timebomb and Friends have been releasing a long series of singles on iTunes every week since the beginning of December 2012 through Hellcat Records.
