A collective of bands from West Kirby over the last week or so looks to be on the cusp of a hit single.
West Kirby producer ‘The Local Stigmatic’ along with Alfie Skelly from The Sundowners, and with a little promotional help from The Coral’s James Skelly, have recorded a song to soundtrack Liverpool FC’s wonderful season so far. A 30-second snippet of the song ‘We Are Liverpool (Poetry In Motion)’ was released as a Ringtone on the Saturday afternoon at 3pm. By 9pm, it was the #1 in the UK Ringtone Charts, ahead of Beyonce, Jay-Z, Pharrell and Katy Perry (who all had a 6-day head start in sales).
A full single is scheduled for release this weekend. A Teaser Video of the single has been uploaded to Youtube.
On the back of this, former Liverpool player & Tranmere manager, John Aldridge has championed the song, asking for the band to deliver him a copy and encouraging others to buy it on Twitter. On the back of this, Sky Sports TV Show ‘Soccer AM’ has been in touch, raving about the video, and wish to play the song on their show.
It doesn’t stop there – Liverpool FC have emailed the band, enquiring about ways they can use the song, and promote it on their website.
The band have pledged to donate all of the profits from the ringtone and the single to the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.
The track is available on itunes.
