Release Date: Out Now
Well, here it is. We’re weeks away from the World Cup in Russia so it’s about time we had the first football song of the year, isn’t it? Surprisingly, it comes courtesy of the Tallywags – a supergroup featuring members of the Sex Pistols, the Wildhearts, 3 Colours Red and the Men They Couldn’t Hang. Go figures. ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ is firmly in the ‘Three Lions’/’Vindaloo’ camp of football song (no John Barnes rap here) but it’s got a pleasing chug about it and a video that rights all the wrongs of previous England exits from major footballing tournaments. On the first listen I pretty much dismissed it but give it another spin and it holds it’s own. It’s no Gazza or Waddle but as a Platt or a Hoddle this track has plenty to offer the team…..Geoff.
