Biography

Spunge (often typeset as [spunge] - lead singer Alex Copeland has joked that the brackets are in the name so that the letters do not fall out) are a ska punk band from Tewkesbury, England. Through many years of touring, Spunge have toured with or played alongside a number of moderately successful UK bands; and several more famous American bands such as Green Day and Dropkick Murphys; and been supported on a UK tour by Bowling for Soup; the latter of whom contributed backing vocals to the song "Centerfold" on the That Should Cover It! album.

Spunge are the only band who have ever officially been given permission by the Marley family to change the lyrics of a Bob Marley song, on their cover of "No Woman, No Cry" (this can be found on their second album, Room for Abuse).[citation needed] The permission came from Ziggy Marley, who liked the new version when they played it to him.

Alex Copeland recently stated in a statement on Facebook he would like people to know that the band had not died in 2011!
