More World Cup tuneage

This track’s claim to fame is that it is the first remotely produced World Cup song. Mr Capello was put together by a music producer from the north west, video production team from the north East and band from Yorkshire who had just one face-to-face meeting and put everything else together over the internet.

We can only presume the auditions for a Fabio Capello lookalike were conducted without the benefit of a face-to-face meeting either!
