Biography

Dum Dum Dum were part of the UK DIY Post Punk underground scene of 78 - 81.

Their EP ‘Dum Dum Dum’ was released in very limited edition hand stamped vinyl on Struck Dum Records - very hard to find - now the track Dum Dum Dum is released on Chuck Warner’s Hyped To Death label on Messthetics Greatest Hits.

Members of the band included Paul Conneally, Bill Buchanan, Andy Fulks, Andy Sizer, Tom Green, Martin Cradick - some of whom went on to play with The Orb, Baka Beyond, Another Fine Day, Iguana Brothers…

Almost impossible to get that first EP

In 1980 Dum Dum Dum made recordings (never formally released) with legendary freeform sax player Lol Coxhill - tracks are slowly resurfacing via the net - such as Directive One:

    It's 1980 and even punk's nihilism is looking overoptimistic. In the Oscar Wilde Rooms, a windowless cell in an Oxford College, Dum Dum Dum take the stage. Guitarist in balaclava, drummer with face painted half-white, half-black and a lead singer armed only with a strobe light, they play to tapes but with malevolent energy. The audience--half skinheads from town, half rugby players who've wandered in from the bar--begin to fight as the rugger-buggers object to having their feet pogoed on. The tape breaks down, and the singer starts pulling the skinheads onto the stage to sing "No Fun". But it's futile. On the mixing desk is a man whose main claim to fame is to have dropped acid at the South Pole. He now pushes everything through the roof and the sound itself becomes a rolling maul of feedback and echo. Serenading the mayhem in free-form, the singer strobes the crowd, catching figures in frozen postures of conflict and delight. The destruction erupts into the night. Good gig.
