Spunge : Roots
It's comedy ska-punk with annoyingly whiny vocals. But it's NOT from America
It's comedy ska-punk with annoyingly whiny vocals. But it's NOT from America. Apparently. No, this is our very own homegrown BRITISH comedy ska-punk. Ah, but this has a serious "message" - don't ignore your roots. Yeah. Good advice. Really important, that, homes, Spunge's roots are in Cheltenham. Which was the site of an Anglo-Saxon monastery as far back as 803. But Cheltenham really came to prominence in the 18th century when it became a spa town. King George (or 'Farmer George' as he was known) was a frequent visitor. And now, of course, Cheltenham is host to more backwards baseball cap wearing skateboarding twats than any other city in Europe. Keep it "real", man. Yeah. Wankers.
