Prog Punk song with a message of
Da Mushrooms was a band formed with Joe Inkpen on lead guitar some years ago. This track became a staple of every XRP radio show for years. It was always played to close the show, and it took me AGES to get to like it.
Yep, it really isn’t going to be everybody’s cup of tea, and even those who may come to like it could take a long while. But if you like your music a little less obvious than “Last Christmas I gave you my heart, but the very next day…”
Sorry, I know now that you have that song stuck in your head, and you will probably listen to anything to try and get rid of it.
So go on, I dare you to immerse yourself in the murky mind of Joe Inkpen and pals, with the song called “Love” by Da Mushrooms.
Musically it owes nothing at all to Christmas. Lyrically, it relates very strongly to a rather extreme version of what Christmas sometimes ends up being like for some families.
Meanwhile I will now try and find something a bit more cheerful to try and remove those images from your mind.
