Album Notes
We has bin able to get our hands on some long lost studio mixes from the Turnips. Our mate James from the Skimmity Hitchers remixed it up into a gert big compilation. More to follow soon we hopes as we as found some more. The Turnips have spent many years popping up in the most obscure venues and festivals in the Westcountry, always underground and fiercely independent, they draw their inspiration from local Scrumpy and Western stars such as the Wurzels, the Carrot Crunchers and the Yokels, from the cider punk culture of Bristol bands such as Chaos UK and Disorder and of course to legends of the celtic punk scene such as the Dreadnoughts.

Their influences are songs of the sea, cider and the land. Recordings often completed in one take of dozens of songs a day. There are hundreds of tracks to choose from since their formation in 1991ish.

The Turnip mission has been to bring lost music of cider and the sea back to the Westcountry nation. This has been a slow mission due to the inebriated and dysfunctional nature of the good ship Turnip. Westcountry culture is still very much under represented in the UK media with constant stereotyping as lower status farmers and pirates and as such is slowly dying. The Turnips stand against this with a glass of scrumpy raised against the forces of corporate greed and snobbery, proud to be ordinary folks. Everyone be welcome aboard the Good Ship Turnip. Arrrrr as they do says round yer.
