Cockwomble - Want Stuff Buy Stuff
Brighton post punk trio Cockwomble (the band that feature Ramonas bassist Vicky Smith) will this month release their 2nd ep (their debut having featured here back in July : https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2018/07/cockwomble-henchmen.html).
I played the title track, All Of The Money! None Of The Style! on a recent Just Some Punk Songs show and a combination of Stella Artois and trying to keep on top of the chatroom chat fogs my recollection a little but I remember it getting praised for the vocals. The song is about the entitled imbeciles currently running the UK. Track 2 (the one you'll find below) is about rampant consumerism, Henry XXXXXV (I think there's a video for this track due soon) is about our ridiculous inbred royal family and closing track Punk In A Dress is about how you don't need to dress in a certain way to be a punk. As you can tell, the band are opinionated, they also have a sense of humour and the happy knack of writing catchy tunes.

Despite being against rampant consumerism, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you splashed our on their record. Check out the video for Want Stuff Buy Stuff....
