PUMPA shoots new jam videos for ‘Sydney Traffic’

So I’ve got a new album out and the first single is a track called ‘Sydney Traffic’. As the title suggests, it’s a song born out of my utter frustration about driving round Sydney at present. (Of course, as always, I have a little fun with it!) LIVE IT LARGE PLAYERS!

New single and videos to give pollies a kick up the proverbial

Did you know that for three years now, Sydney has been rated as among the Western world’s worst cities for traffic congestion? We’re the seventh worst, in fact, sitting just behind the daily traffic snarl that is Los Angeles!

New single satirises Sydney Traffic

In an interview this week on his local community station Eastside Radio (FM 89.7), PUMPA spoke of his excitement about once again putting a rocket up certain authorities with his new single succinctly titled ‘Sydney Traffic’. “I can’t wait to clog the arterial thoroughfares of certain politicians whose policies are directly contributing to the state of our roads here in Sydney”, he told presenter Warren Davies. “I’ve travelled all over this fair nation and have no doubt that Sydney leaves every other capital city in the country for dea  More...
