Splodgenessabounds - Simon Templer


On this date in 1980, Splodgenessabounds released their debut single, "Simon Templer". It was backed by "Michael Booth's Talking Bum" and "Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps Please". The A side appeared on their self-titled debut album. The other two tracks did not but were added as bonus tracks when the album was re-released on CD. Although the single went to #7 on the U.K. singles chart, the popular song was really "Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps Please". The London punk band has been on and off since 1981 but are currently performing together.
