The Sun were really on form today so I decided to give them and their team of copywriting monkeys the kudos they deserve and keep that terrific headline. Anyway, exciting news from the world of music as two former members of the Sex Pistols threatened to write a “new anthem” for their beloved Chelsea FC. Now call me cynical, but an ‘anthem’ is not really something you can just set out to create, let alone randomly claim about one of your own songs. Undeterred, Steve Jones and Paul Cook, aka the ones that weren’t Johnny Rotten or Sid Vicious and you never heard of because they didn’t really do much, are attempting to distill their vast musical ability and years of Stamford Bridge knowledge into one magical 3 minute pop song as we speak. While rumours that it will be a slice of jazz fusion, with only spoken word poetry for vocals, have yet to be confirmed, I for one will be right here on the edge of my seat waiting.
Jones scoffed: “We want to do something that’s not corny like all the other football songs. Music and football tend to produce appalling results when put together, that’s what we want to avoid.” Come on Steve, did you not hear World in Motion or the Anfield Rap?
