OK, we’re clear to go live with this.
I heard the song London Underground a few weeks ago and wasn’t surprised to see it bounce like mad around The Interwebs… but I did think it was a pity that it didn’t have a Flash show to make it more communicative and easier to share via linkage.
I also didn’t do anything about that until Wibbler opened his big fat mouth yesterday. Not that he really had to prompt me or anything. He just had to get my attention for the 5 consecutive seconds required for me to conclude that I was the man for the job. If they’d have me.
And have me they did. (Matron! The clamps!)
I got in touch with the chaps behind the song yesterday (Dr Suman Biswas and Dr Adam Kay) and quickly found myself up and about late last night and early today building this. I hope you enjoy it:
Warning: NSFW (contains many a dangdoodle cussword).
Oi! Don’t forget to buy the album! Every penny from CD sales goes to Macmillan Cancer Relief. They say. And you can trust them; they’re doctors. With clean hands and filthy mouths.
(Now all I have to do is wait patiently for the right time to mention my own lyrical mobilities – and the possible need for illegal surgery – so I can make full use of these scalpel-wielding musicians and exploit them like a true pop svengali.)
Note: Backing Blair (which I’m still keeping under wraps) was chosen for the hosting because Balders and I already had beefy servers sorted out for that location… and a little inbound link popularity certainly won’t hurt pre-launch. Also, I’m a little pissed that – because the Tories stuffed up our rail network and Labour have done SFA to fix it (and are set on tube privatisation) – it’s unlikely to be a major election issue.
Funny; you’d think the current government would be able to get the trains to run on time…
