Nature Boys Live at Cre-8

One of the pleasures of listening to the Nature Boys is catching a half heard phrase or lyric and wondering if you heard it correctly. Did lead singer Cammy really just sing:

“There’s no defence from the plethora of drunken honeyeyed words. The once great empire of Carthage comes crashing tumbling to her knees”

Yes he did. The Nature Boys are a punk band and a very entertaining one at that but they also have hidden depths. Along with Cammy’s literary allusions, guitarist Mark Cooper is also a motivational speaker and ultra runner. Live their performances kick an appropriate amount of derriere but what makes then special is that they can leave you smiling too. Smiling and possibly slightly scared, and what more do you want from a rock n roll band?
