Chumbawamba A Capella, or Chumbawamba, Yon Instrumentation Doth Slumba!

In 1989, Chumbawamba released an album of a capella songs of rebellion spanning many centuries. The 10-inch record did not sit well with the "punk public" who were still listening to "re-hashed versions of Feeding of the 5000." The staff of Maximum Rocknroll even had a staff meeting to discuss whether they would continue to do any write ups or interviews with the band and after a hearty discussion deemed the recording as "not punk" and haven't mentioned them much ever since. In Ian Glasper's book The Day The Country Died: A History Of Anarcho-Punk-1980-1984, Boff Whalley said, "On the one hand we thought it was ridiculous, and on the other we thought it was quite funny! Some of those people were just's no good getting all upset about it; we never said anyone had to like it; we just wanted to provoke them, to get them to try something different for once..."
