Biography

1986, while the rest of the music industry was clawing out each others' eyes to appear on Live Aid and trying to work out how many units starvation could sell, CHUMBAWAMBA released the aptly titled LIVE AID critique: PICTURES OF STARVING CHILDREN SELL RECORDS. The band were labelled "heartless bastards" and the hate/hate relationship with the music industry was launched. ... Read more in Amazon's Chumbawamba Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect pop punk 30 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
From the beginning to end, this album is filled with gems (TimeBomb, Homophobia and Give The Anarchist A Cigarette are classic) and while it may have one song where the sentiment outweighs the quality (Enough is enough), the rest stands up as an example of how mainstream could be done. If this CD came out after TubThumper, Chumba would be TOTP staples.

Even though they're still alive and still touring, a lot of people are going to remember Chumbawamba as a bunch of rowdy anarchist shouters who fluked one hit record with "Tubthumping". Yet every single one of Chumbawamba's albums proves that wrong, including this one.

It is a lovely mix of catchy tunes (politics aside, they are simply great song writers) with literate and meaningful lyrics. It's not fashionable to be political in music nowadays (putting weak Live8 messages aside), but listening to this album you begin to think that there should be a lot more politics in music.

Every album of Chumbawamba's is subtly different in style from the last, and over the course of lots of albums they've shifted from being punk-rockers, to dance-pop-rockers (including "Tubthumper"), to folky dance-poppers (the brilliant "Readymades" and "Un"). Even though this album's called "Anarchy" and the cover is, erm, 'bold', this is not one of their punk-rock albums. This is a 1994 album when they have mastered pop beats, the sampler, and other slick production touches.

It's also very diverse. "Love Me" and "This Year's Thing" are quite full-on rock numbers. "Timebomb" is pure pop. "Georgina" is a doo-wop ballad about domestic abuse. MC Fusion (from Credit To The Nation) appears on some tracks, including "Enough Is Enough". "Mouthful Of S***" is the shouting frenzy that Chumbawamba now seem to be remembered for. "Rage" is a brief yet very moving Dylan Thomas-quoting outro (assuming you discount the hidden track).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant music - deserves a wider audience 23 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a superb album. There are a few reasons why it has never reached the size of audience it deserves. Some of these reasons may be a sad reflection on the music business, the media, and perhaps even the public at large (the 'we get what we're given' approach). Unfortunately, what may be the single biggest reason is entirely the fault of band (or record company) i.e. the truly awful cover; why was any of it a good idea?

Having said that, this is my favoriate Chumbawmba (from 1994 - I don't know why Amazon says '1999' in some places)and damn good it is. At times they make producing catchy, punchy original-sounding music sound so easy.

For me, much of the bands' political views are frankly half-baked (sorry chaps! may be important to you, but they're not to me), but don't really detract from the music.

Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey kids look at this!!! 24 Aug 2012
By Mr B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In several words, Ace! Brilliant! First (Class)! oops!

As an intro to Chumber this collection is great, as a long time fan, it lacks some nice early stuff, BUT, its still great!! As time goes on I feel more dis-enfranchised from the youth...dam age.. but this album brings it all back...some crackers but too short...loved abcdefg as apurist but the slight returns to Agit Pop are much appreciated!! God on you Chumba!! No political sellout gripes from this corner!! Keep the Anarchy alive!!!

For a better appreciation of Anarchy and its beliefs see Anthony Beevor 1336-1339 Spanish Civil War, Anarchy is not all graffitti and petrol bombs just agreed co-operation! A far superior system of government!

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly brilliant from start to fiinsh 29 Sep 2011
By Peter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That says it all really. I bought this album when it came out, and rediscovered it on my iPod yesterday while bored on a flight. How have I forgotten it for so long ? Interestingly my 13 year old son recently commented he had been listening to it as he had found it in my MP3 collection, so you don't have to be ancient to appreciate it.
I think one of the best tracks on it among the general excellence is 'Enough is Enough', unlike the views of one other reviewer, though it's a close run thing with most of the other tracks, what an under-rated group !
