Band BiographyEdit

An anarchist group that lives in a commune and puts out records, they have quite a Pop sensibility. The world at large tends to think of them as a one-hit wonder, from their song "[[Tubthumping:Chumbawamba|Tubthumpin", though they've had many, many records and are still recording. Many of their songs are just as poppy—it's hard to gauge the record buying public, but perhaps the use of link-tracks and samples on [[Tubthumper:Chumbawamba|Tubthumpe turned people off (particularly the sample from an autopsy or something attached to "[[Amnesia:Chumbawamba|Amnesi"?). After parting ways with [[EM, they founded their own label (distributed by [[Republi in the US). Since 2000, the group have become increasingly folk-oriented, with Readymades sampling various British folk singers (in a nod to [[Moby|Moby' use of blues samples on Play ), and a reduced line-up (now without founder members Alice Nutter and Danbert Nobacon) recording the mostly acoustic A Singsong and a Scrap andThe Boy Bands Have Won.
