As we reported last week, the two Clash alum reunited in the studio for the first time in 27 years alongside Bragg to record a cover of the classic "Jail Guitar Doors" for the charity of the same name. The initiative is aimed at supplying musical instruments to prison inmates to aid with their rehabilitation. Bragg, Jones and Headon were backed by a band comprised of former inmates Leon Walker, Jonny Neesom, Kevin Hawkins and Jon Smillie. The recording took place in former Mescalero Steve "Smiley" Barnard's studio. The event was filmed as part of an upcoming documentary by Alan Miles titled Breaking Rocks.
