Chumbawamba split

It probably comes as no surprise that I have consistently been a fan of Chumbawamba. I think that I have half of their 15 albums. I dumped all of my vinyl 15 years ago, keeping only 5. Never Mind the Ballots was one of the five. I saw them perform Never Mind the Ballots at the De Grey club in Hull. They were a little late turning up I recall, but they were sensational. Their shows were always spectacles and they stayed true to their radical left position (even when their followers strayed). Some great lines.

They have been a shadow of their former selves for a number of years in the absence of Danbert Nobacon, Dunstan and Alice Nutter.

I recommend the touching documentary on youtube “Well Done. Now Sod off” in two parts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiyy3dace2M&feature=related; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioTwFNu4Cdo&feature=relmfu

Whatever current and former band members wish for, I hope they get it. Thank you.
