This latter period Chumbawamba collection benefits from the inclusion of "Give the Anarchist a Cigarette," "Ugh! Your Ugly Houses" (a sideswipe at the non-taste of the celebrities featured in Hello magazine), "Enough Is Enough" (originally recorded with Brit rappers Credit to the Nation) and the catchy/cloying "Timebomb." Most of the material is taken from Anarchy (1994) and Swingin' With Raymond (1996). "Mouthful of Shit," the highlight of Anarchy, makes a welcome return. 23 tracks is surely enough Chumbawamba for even the hardiest of die-hards, but if you don't have the studio albums, this is the best place to start.

Originally titled HONEY IN THE ROCK and later renamed for its hit song (Daniels's first chart entry), UNEASY RIDER is the third Charlie Daniels album, but the first to put his name on the map. In addition to his previous southern-rock-meets-Western-swing sound, the album includes a significant R&B influence, making for an intriguing country-funk style. The title track's talking blues is particularly significant for espousing a hippie/counterculture perspective on the part of a man who'd later become known for championing more conservative values.

Atmospheric Uneasy Listening is the 1993 CD by Whaleman, or Whaleman Sings. As the back cover indicates, it is of Whaleman playing "genuine electric bowed bass" so the music can be considered classical. The music could also be considered music made for whales, or meant to sound like whales. His origins are unknown but the CD listed an address in Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. It is unknown where Whaleman is today.

Thatcher died on Monday, 8th April 2013 and the CDs were mailed out the same day. Chumbawamba fans have received the Margaret Thatcher EP In Memoriam four years after pre-ordering the record. Fans first put in their orders after the alternative band from Burnley, best known for their 1997 hit “Tubthumping”, announced online in April 2009 that the memorial disk was “already recorded, pressed and ready to go”. Out of press and sale!

Pictures of Starving Children Sell Records: Long before a song about relentless alcohol consumption ("Tubthumping") made them the toast of sports stadia worldwide, a rather different Chumbawamba stalked the toilet venues of England's counterculture. In 1986, as the rock world congratulated itself on its new, enlightened attitude to world poverty following Band Aid, a refusenik group of Leeds anarchists pointed out some of the inconsistencies behind the arguments.

Having fully settled into their stripped-down acoustic size, Chumbawamba document several months of touring with a live album. Interestingly, there aren't that many songs from their last disc; instead it's a skip through not only through their back catalog, but their traditions. Of much greater importance now are the harmonies they've honed over the years – indeed, there's quite a bit of unaccompanied singing where they acquit themselves very well – with the music more as a backdrop to the voices.

Shhhlap! is more of a public service than anything new – a two-fer of the albums Shhh and Slap! Both have their significance in the Chumbawamba canon, marking a turning away from their outright punk past and into a more individual, modern sound; bringing out the innate humor and wordplay that's been one of their trademarks ever since. Shhh is a decidedly cynical look at the music business; the album that appeared after their projected music business take, "Jesus H. Christ", was unable to happen because no one would grant licenses for the use of samples – Shhh being a reference to being gagged.

As the bandmembers themselves call it, Swingin' With Raymond is the "Lovin' It record and the Loathin' It record." And, given that it's a double-CD set, that makes perfect sense, especially when the songs seem to split them up so perfectly. Of course, this being Chumbawamba, it would be asking too much to think there aren't touches of irony in the love songs, where Lou Watts' sweet voice soothes over acoustic guitar and arrangements that steer clear of the jagged.

Eine gelungene Abschiedsparty mit allen bekannten Songs der Band, einschließlich "Tubthumping", der satirischen Facebook-Nutzer-Hymne "Add Me" oder der Metallica-Folterfantasie "Torturing James Hetfield".

From agit-prop punks, through anarchic dance music, to settling into rebel folkies, Chumbawamba have maintained a political stance of anti-capitalism and rebellion, with a willingness to stick two fingers up at anyone they disapprove of. So the current Government is just too easy a target (shooting fish in a barrel, anyone?). (…) Throughout the music is wonderful – a lovely pastiche of the music hall tradition with folk tinges. But it’s the words it hinges on. As such, this is a curate’s egg – parts of it are excellent.
