Chessboxing Gets Ejected!
Hailing from Dagenham, Essex, The Ejected were an early 80s punk band signed to Bristol label Riot City. Their fast-and-furious 1982 indie hit ‘Have You Got 10p’ appears in a newly released film, By Rook or Left Hook.
Described as “Rocky meets The Queen’s Gambit as brain and brawn are put to the test”, this documentary uncovers the netherworld of professional chessboxing, a sport which taxes mind and body through alternating rounds of chess and boxing. A punk sport by any other name!
