Thumped’s effort for the Christmas No. 1. Good luck lads. Christmastime In Dublin Town is available to buy from iTunes for 99c right now. Money raised from sales will be donated to a Wet Hostel in Dublin city centre.
Initiated as an experiment in collaboratively creating a killer pop tune for Christmas by Thumped member Shneaky 6pack, this thing sprouted legs and is now hurtling up the iTunes Irish Pop chart. Board members each wrote a line, with each having seen only the preceding line, and when 12 lines were written… well, listen for yourself..
The level of solidarity this project has inspired amongst the members of Irelands most significant fully Independent music website has been staggering ,with people from all corners and genres getting involved to try put the kibosh on the usual muck we are forcefed annually at this time of year.
So, this song might well be muck too – but it’s the PEOPLES muck!
Death to the record Industry… LONG LIVE MUSIC! (oh and MERRY FUCKING CHRISTMAS)
Love, Shneaky 6Pack & the Christmastime in Dublin Town Gang!
