Biography

Chumbawamba were an English musical group formed in 1982 in the Leeds squatting community. They have, over a career spanning nearly three decades, played punk rock, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music. Their vocal anarchist politics exhibit an irreverent attitude toward authority; the band have been forthright in their syndicalist, pacifist, communist, mutlicultural, and feminist social stances. The band are best known for their song “Tubthumping.” Other singles have included “Amnesia,” “Enough Is Enough” (with MC Fusion), “Timebomb,” “Top of the World (Ole, Ole, Ole),” and most recently, “Add Me.”

    (The truth is, I thought it mattered)
    (I thought that music mattered.)
    (But does it? Pollocks! Not compared to how people matter)

    Lyrics
    Goodbye to the summer, sold down the river
    Unhappy ever after, well, did you ever
    Did you ever reach for the glued-down penny?
    Same old joke and it's not funny
    Burns are red, bruises blue

    Lyrics
    Eat, sleep and crap, for to prey on your needs
    Down a dark street, in backwater Leeds
    I seen yer comin', come in lads
    You seen the ads? Too bad, bad, bad
    What you get is what you see

    All my friends jumped ship
    I elect me the captain
    This is the loneliest voyage
