World Cup Special: Our Song for South Africa

My friends in Cop On The Edge have written a world cup song, and here they are to tell you all about it:


It is time to get excited. We are very pleased to be part of a brand new compilation celebrating the 2010 World Cup.

'Fast Forward', lovingly put together by those fine people at Indiecater Records, is a collection of 32 songs, by 32 bands, each writing about one of the 32 countries taking part in this year's World Cup. Our contribution is Bafana Bafana, a tribute not just to the South African football team, but to awesome South Africans in general.

Click here to listen to the songs, and you can download the album for a mere €5, or buy a memory stick with artwork, lyrics and other gubbins for €10.

This will be the first of a veritable gush of releases coming your way from us this summer as we finish up our studio adventures, but it will definitely be the only one to namecheck Desmond Tutu.

A quote for the election

'There used to be a thing or a commodity we put great store by. It was called the People. Find out where the People have gone. I don't mean the square-eyed toothpaste-and-hair-dye people or the new-car-or-bust people, or the success-and-coronary people. Maybe they never existed, but if there ever were the People, that's the commodity the Declaration was talking about, and Mr. Lincoln.'

John Steinbeck
