Artist: Chumbawamba

Album: Tubthumper

Appears On (Mixes): The Boys And Girls Are Lifting Up Their Plates, Happy Birthday Dad; Dad's Guitar Stuff

Song Notes: The Boys And Girls Are Lifting Up Their Plates: Since I'm basically blowing my indie-obscuro credibility here with the last one, why not go all out? Chumbawamba is basically a complete guilty pleasure of mine, and this is probably their best track. It's from the Big Hit Record, Tubthumper, but it's a really catchy, hooky song. I've got a remarkably low tolerance for their political stuff (the whole feeding tofu to their dog thing is just silly), but damned if they can't put together a fine pop-song. The album version has a sampled coda which seems to be taken from an autopsy documentary or something to that effect, and it's a little bit disturbing (which I assume was the point), but I've taken the liberty of chopping it out for you. Again, I don't know if I really have a whole lot more to add, but that I was basically just as surprised as you when I found out they were actually good. So, hey, check this out! - Rev. Syung Myung Me
