Splodgenessabounds are an Englishpunk rockband formed in Peckham, South London. The band is associated with the Oi! and punk pathetique genres. Their frontman is Max Splodge (born Martin Everest). They have scored three UK Singles Chart entries, including one Top 10 hit and a second Top 30 hit
The band was formed over a cab office called Baron Cars in Queens Road, Peckham.
They were originally fronted by Max Splodge and his girlfriend of the time, who was known as Baby Greensleeves. The band won a recording contract with Deram Records after finishing runner-up in the 1979 Battle of the Bands contest, even though Deram was planning to cease all activities in the music markets outside of classical music. The band’s first release for Deram in 1980 was “Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps Please”. The song was released as a triple A side vinyl single, along with “Simon Templer” (a pastiche of the theme tune of the TV series, Return of the Saint featuring the character Simon Templar) and “Michael Booth’s Talking Bum”.
