The Amazingly Awesome Bumble Brothers
So today is the day I can finally start to give you some details about why the blog has been so quiet and what I've been up to in the meantime. But first we must go back.
Some twenty odd years ago, myself and fellow member of The Sway, Jim Kook disappeared from our everyday lives and took a trip to the seaside. Whilst there,we spotted a chalk board outside a pub. 'The World's Strongest Lager - Sold Here!' was the claim.
During the next twenty four hours of lostness, a postcard was written and posted to Jim's place of work - a place he was supposed to be at, at that very moment. Such was our bravado, the card was simply signed 'Fuck off. Love from The Bumble Brothers x' and the legend was born (and Jim somehow kept his job!). After spotting that sign outside the boozer, vague flashbacks are the only thing I can remember. A lady dressed as Cat Women and an aborted attempt to book a room at a Bed and Breakfast are two but the memory of the solemn vow, that we would one day write and record our interpretation of popular music, under the guise of 'The Bumble Brothers', shines brightest and lives longest.
So here we are, a little covertly but now almost ready to spread our musical legs and take you to the hilt. In fact, we're so confident, that we've added 'amazingly awesome' to the name. That's why additions to this blog have virtually ground to a halt. Every ounce of my writing energy has been spent writing lyrics, which I'm happy to report have led to me being called 'a fucking genius', several times, by my partner in crime. I wouldn't go that far but if they stand up, then the inspiration for what I've written, is totally down to him tickling my creative bone, with his mad tunes.
We have made great advancements towards completing our debut EP, which will be released free of charge to everyone adding our Facebook page, to their list of likes.

Thanks for reading.
And brace yourselves.
Oh! And bring lube. It's gonna be fucking mental!
