The Darling Buds – Shame on You

The Darling Buds never seemed to make it into the mainstream. They came along at the same time as more successful ‘Indie Cindy’ fronted bands such as The Primitives or Transvision Vamp (Wendy James, hmmmm), however their own version of poppy punk was quite appealing. The band took their name from the book by H. E. Bates (The Darling Buds of May) long before the TV series starring David Jason as Pop Larkin and Catherine Zeta-Jones as his daughter Mariette. The album this track is taken from (Pop Said) is a reference to this book also.
