» Time for another versus…

This is an interactive post where you choose the winner.

The last time we did this was with a compo between singing Middlesbore fans who did a song about their club. The final result went to Ewan Carmichael who won by a landslide.

Today it is a battle of the punk bands. But not between your usual suspects. This one pitches a couple of punk acts from the continent against each other.

Have a read of their bio, then listen to the song and vote afterwards to decide – Do you love or hate football ?

BUT TAKE NOTE… this isn’t actually about whether you actually do love or hate footie, that point is pretty moot since you are here reading this. The competition is about the song. Please take time to hear both tracks and then vote to decide if it is yah or nah:

– First up is a Dutch band “Speedtwins”, who were around in the original punk explosion of the 1970’s. They were the support band when the Sex Pistols toured the Netherlands and they released a punk cover version of The Who’s “My Generation”. Sadly the original lead singer died and eventually in the ’80’s they disbanded.

In 1978 they recorded this track which sounds like an anti-footie song, but was actually directed at the Argentinian junta that organised the ’78 World Cup.

This one starts with a crowd noise and then… ah so this is where Fat Les got that drum beat from… then they do a version of a tune I posted about the other day. This time red is the colour:

Speedtwins » Speedtwins – Football Song

– Next is a current band: “Vanilla Muffins” who are from Switzerland. They are big footie fans and have recorded many songs on the subject of football. This is a general obsessed about the whole game sort of song:

Vanilla Muffins » Vanilla Muffins – The Drug Is Football

What´s the reason for your life, It´s a deadly poisoned knife
when you go into the town just to see what´s down
every day is like the other keep your fear undercover
It´s the only way to pay for you addiction

We live in one ghetto
we´re not better boys
the drug is football

we live in one ghetto
we got deadly bored
but our drug is football

You´re not the only one to think you had no fun
but it ain´t no really good cause just for you to end it
It could be the start of love take today without a drug
It´s like the end of a beautiful friendship

We live in one ghetto
we´re not better boys
the drug is football

we live in one ghetto
we got deadly bored
but our drug is football

Now you’ve listened please vote »
