Australian Premiere

The Brit Pop 90's: Cool Britannia was in full swing. The Oasis vs. Blur rivalry was simmering. The Nokia 3210 was a must-have. And there was that song; 'I Get Knocked Down', aka ‘Tubthumping’ - either the ultimate anthem of working-class perseverance or a deeply annoying novelty song, brought to you by a group of anarcho-punks living in a squat in Leeds.

More than twenty years later, Chumbawamba founder Dunstan Bruce weirdly and wonderfully reflects on a rollercoaster ride journey from DIY squat gigs to performing at Madison Square Garden and back down again - after funnelling all that one-hit-wonder money into sex, drugs, and...community centres.

The gods of irony shine brightly on Dunstan Bruce, for when life knocks you down, well, you know what to do.
