With ONE WEEK to go until the first England match of the World Cup 2010, the fans are getting their ‘chant’ on, the players are gearing up to whip the Americans, injuries abound, and we’re getting ready for the 2010 World Cup BIG Push for our World Record attempt:

Imagine 1966 pubs and venues around the world all simultaneously playing “Chant Like An English Fan” during the half-time break on June 12th…!

Chanting England to glory AND setting a brand new World Record at the same time… phew!

BUT…We still need your help… the more Brit pubs we have onboard, the better. Why just set a World Record, let’s make the bar so high it really will be record-breaking…!

England Fan…?

May 29, 2010

Yeah, we know… and thanks (all 97 of you so far!) for pointing out the obviousness of our “mistake“: why is the song called “Chant Like an ENGLISH Fan” and not Chant like an England fan?

Bloody good question!

Want the answer? Really, want the answer…?

Well, we could come up with a very clever answer to solve the mystery… Did we do it on purpose…? Is it some big marketing gimmick…? Is the secret to the Universe locked inside…? Nah, actually it’s rather long and boring, but to satisfy the curiousity of our fans that asked… all NINETY-SEVEN of you… that rubbed our noses in it, proving once again that you don’t necessarily need to be smart to have a smash hit, we felt we owed an explanation.

When Mad Ant first came up with the concept, the song was headed in a totally differnt direction. We’ll let him explain it in his own words:

I’ve always tinkered with lyrics. When I first came to the US, it bugged me that EVERYBODY kept saying the obvious, “Wow, you’re not from round here, are you Australian?” So, in order to keep my sanity, I made up a song called “Talk Like An Englishman” to the tune of the Bangles’ 80s hit “Walk Like An Egyptian”. It was more along the lines ofa Monty Python-style piss-take of all the jolly foreigners that can’t speaky-da-Engleesh.

“When I shared the idea with Richard (Eyre), we both realized footie season was upon us, and it was time to do a World Cup song for shits and giggles. That was the beginning of “Chant”. I guess, what with all the other stuff going on (putting the band together, learning about the music business, getting in the studio, etc.) and being rather drunk for most of the project – apparently alcohol is a good catalyst for creativity – nobody realized or bothered to mention that we hadn’t changed the English part to England.”

Phew! Well, now you know…

Remember, you can follow us on Twitter @theladdz, find us on Facebook somewhere, and – possibly – still hear our track on Myspace http://myspace.com/theladdz

Cheers for all the continued support!

Chant Like a United Fan…!

March 13, 2010

Some exciting Barclays Premier League action promised tomorrow afternoon with the upcoming match between Manchester United and Fulham at Old Trafford. The Laddz have it on very good authority that Alan Keegan (http://www.alankeegan.co.uk/), the official compere at Old Trafford, will be giving “Chant Like an English Fan” a blast out to all the fans during half-time at the match.

“This is probably one of the greatest pre-birthday gifts I could ever have wished for,” beams Donnelly, co-writer of the song. “I won’t tell you how old I’ll be later this month, but it’s a bit of a milestone. I’m ecstatic at how well ‘Chant’ is being taking onboard by fans and supporters this year, it’s brilliant!”

Unfortunately our meagre marketing budget didn’t stetch far enough for tickets, but we hope at least some of the fans will catch on to the ‘Chantability’ of the track and adapt the chorus to a stand-stomping:

“Ay-oh whey-oh, ay-oh whey-oh… Chant like a United fan… come an’ score a goal, if you think you’re fast enough!”

We’d obviously love to hear some feedback from any die-hard Man Utd fans that are going to the match, to hear how the supporters reacted to the chant. Naturally a HUGE shout-out of thanks goes to Mr Keegan for plugging our track at such a large event.

Thank you very much, and United boys make us proud…!
