As the World Cup approaches the country adopts a predictably deluded assessment of our chances of victory. While an ever-increasing number of songwriter's buy into this misguided optimism.




The time has come for an alternative, a song that that delivers a refreshingly honest take on the reality of following the national side during the world's biggest sporting occasion.

Now there's a song that acknowledges this reality -- World Cup Tears (of a Nation) by Dagenham's finest Punk Rock outfit, Underclass UK.

Shot at the legendary Bridgehouse II venue in Canning Town, East London, this promotional video, depicts the band and the general public becoming disengaged with the selfish antics of a group of young men with too much money and too much adulation.

From a seemingly Patriotic stance, we dip into darkness and resentment where Underclass UK move into the dangerous territory of stating an eventuality that we've all thought, but no one dare speak.... Are we just not good enough?

Featuring the voice of TalkSport 'Bo Time' Idents (Strongbow), Rupert Degas, World Cup Tears (of a Nation) will be available from all good online download outlets from 1st June, and will be donating all of it's profits to The Bobby Moore Fund.
