Chumbawamba: Live in Bremen, 2008 (FM)

Worry not Powerpearls fans (see HERE), we'll return to the twinkie-ness soon enough, but in keeping with the simultaneously ADD and Obsessive-Compulsiveness of my work here we need to continue to mourn the passing of English-anarcho-folk-dance-punks, Chumbawamba (first take HERE). To remind of of what we've all lost, here's an amazing bootleg - stereling broadcast sound quality and a perfect performance by the smaller, folkier version of the band.

  1. Hey, thanks for your comments (pro and con) on Chumba.

  2. Yes, please more Chumba, particularly from their better rock days!

    1. If that's the eighties era, then it shall be done!

  3. I remember a friend of mine playing a later Chumba folk album. I remember laughing at him when I saw it- then I hear it. It was great. I can't wait to hear it.

    Also, I was thinking Jeffen that you might like my friends band that recently broke up (he was the guy with the Chumba album). Give it a listen- I think you might like it. I like the song "Forget Yr Broken Heart" and "Ghost of Jim Jones (reprise)" but they are all great. I figure that you have turned me onto enough great music that I would like to return the favor a little.



  4. More,more,more please!
    Oh,i forgot:More!

  5. Oh Chumbawamba, much maligned but donated a fair bit of their profits to the causes they supported and dealt better with the contradictions of being musicians better than most, with more humor...


    1. 'Contradictions', 'humour' 'causes' three words that must be used when discussing this band.

  6. Please keep the Chumba comin'!
