After releasing a 10" of a cappella folk and before releasing their first dance-rock album, Chumbawamba (more HERE) played a A Night of Punk Rock Nostalgia at the 1 in 12 Club in December 1988 wherein they played the hits of punk rock; The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Stiff Little Fingers, Buzzcocks, The Damned, The Adverts , UK Subs, 999 and, the Dead Kennedys! (Listen to the whole thing HERE)
This is a flagrant audience recording of the night in question and between songs you can hear the delightfully banal banter of eighties English punk punters. This of course, makes this whole affair that much more...tender? After all, Chumba are taking the piss out of the idea of punk rock nostalgia by playing these songs in character, sort of like their mock-oi side project, Skin Disease but they also clearly love the material in question.
If you wanna hear some more rare Chumba, please leave a COMMENT, I have a folder full of oddities and absurdities that I'm willing to share, non-chronologically, if you're willing.
Support the band!
