CONTRIBUTE: Chumbawamba’s Thumping Comeback

BY Sehba Mohammad

For those still mired in 90's nostalgia, Leeds band Chumbawamba is making a feature-length documentary about their overplayed, one hit wonder "Tubthumping." The documentary, I Get Knocked Down, is an account of how a group of unknown north England anarchist, who played DIY squat gigs, accidentally dropped one of the biggest songs in pop-history. The hit propelled them onto center stage before dropping them into obscurity. Chumbawamba, above 1983, below… READ MORE
