Hi Ho Come On England

Filed under: short reviews — @ 11:17 am Comments (0)

The World Cup is under way and finally I’ve heard the first World Cup song I actually like. It’s Hi Ho Come England by Blind Granny’s Taxi Nightmare and they do a version of Jeff Beck’s Hi Ho Silver Lining with new lyrics. The sort of song that you could easily imagine being sung on the terraces. All profits go to the charity Fourth Lion which pays for sporting equipment for underprivileged children. The band are named after a headline in the local Worcestershire newspaper. That’s a small but select club – my band was Roftop Sex Plunge, named after a small article in The Manchester Evening News commenting on the number of people who died in Turkey falling off roofs having made love.
