Get Your Hopes Up (Win, Win, Win)
Seriously. What in fuck's name is this? If you can think of a worse World Cup song than this, including the dreadful 'We're On The Ball', then you're off-your-fuuuuuckinnnng-tiiiiits-maaaan.
Of course, this isn't surprising when you look at who is involved. Firstly, you have Gideon Conn who, for reasons unclear, has made a name for himself by melding Damien Rice with the sounds of Scatman John. He's fast winning hearts as 'Manchester's acoustic Jamiroquai'. ((c) us))
Our favourite bit of heckling in recent memory was when Gideon Conn supported Bobby Conn (see what they did there?) - a lone audience member simply shouted 'please die'. (It wasn't us)
Secondly, you've got Clint Boon - currently leading the 'Boon Army' (the Dad's Army of music, bellowing "DON'T PANIC!" every time someone dares to imply that Manchester may have been a bit shit around 1990). Boon Army and a sea of blokes poking shelltoes into a lager-soaked South nightclub dancefloor go arm-in-arm.
Who the fuck thought it might be a good idea to get this pair into a studio?
Even the notoriously-shit PWEI made a better world cup song than this. *necks dove*
