Chumbawamba

I was introduced to Chumbawamba through their various tracks on all sorts of compilation tapes that circulated around, usually benefit tapes for hunt saboteurs, or some other political causes. Then I've managed to get copies of their first two LPs, "Pictures Of Starving Children Sell Records" and "Never Mind The Ballots" on tape and I was hooked. I liked their mix of melodical tunes and political criticism. It was refreshing, cos at that time I listened to a lot of anarcho-punk bands from 1980's (you can describe Crass in many ways, but being a melodical band isn't one of them) and a lots of Doom, Hiatus, Swedish D-Beat type of stuff… Since I've decided to put up music that I've ripped myself, here you have mostly Chumbawamba albums from the 1990's. There is quite extensive article on Wikipedia about them so if you're interested in them, go check it out.

Mega links still work... might be your flash acting up, flash is shitty. Update your flash or try using different browser like Firefox or Chrome or Opera.
