They get knocked down, but this time they won't get up again. Though the world seems to have long since forgotten about '90s rock group Chumbawamba -- of "Tubthumping" fame -- the band has announced on its official website plans to dissolve after a three-decade career.
The statement, posted on the aptly-titled Chumba.com, detailed the members' plans to end things "with neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, singalong choruses and Dada sound poetry, finally at an end." The band had remained relatively inactive in recent years, although they performed in and recorded the soundtrack for the "Big Society!" musical in Leeds earlier this year.
