A band called Chonkinfeckle have recorded Wigan Athletic's FA Cup song, before the Latics have even played their semi-final.
Clad in traditional flat caps and collarless shirts, the trio's rather lovable and catchy number is entitled "I'm from Wigan, me", and has more than a touch of Phoenix Nights about it. Instruments featured are equally reflective of the area's musical tradition - the electric keyboard, the ukulele and the 'string attached to a stick attached to an upturned plastic Union Jack basin'.
Also featuring is club owner Dave Whelan, who makes a buttock-clenchingly awkward cameo in which he mimes clumsily along while plucking the bucket bass, before banging out a harmonica 'solo'.
Thatcher-loving Whelan aside, it's still easy to take the piss out of it - very easy. In fairness, though, it's actually a lovely throwback to a more honest, community-based version of football, which Wigan Athletic still pretty much is. It's also nice to see fans take genuine pleasure in reaching a big game, in a fashion that reflects the unique charms and quirks of their town.
More of this kind of stuff, I say.
