Chumbawamba: Revolution EP (with booklet), 1985



Note: Chumbawamba fans are great commenters, therefore this series will continue, if irregularly and irreverently. Also, the series is wildly non-chronological not out of some attempt to adhere to anarchist principles but because the band's discography is utterly bewildering.






Hey, here's the first Chumbawamba (more HERE) single from 1985 (which is not to imply I don't have old demos, if you're so inclined). This single, whose track list won't help you much, feels kinda like a rehearsal for Pictures of Starving Children Sell Records, as a couple of the 'sections' done here are repeated on that classic album. Ultimately, it's a formative document, which, while not foretelling every shift the band would go through, does show a band determined to be attacking on multiple fronts simultaneously.

If you wanna hear some STILL more rare Chumba, please leave a COMMENT, there's a folder full of oddities and absurdities that I'm willing to share, non-chronologically, if you're willing.
