Mick’s been interested in a song about Pompey for some time and he’s been writing to me about it. What would it be like? There are lots of songs about lots of places and some of them are real crackers – the USA has more than it’s fair share but Ian Dury is an obvious nomination for great songs about bits of England – others?
Mick alerted me to a recent story about a bunch of people who, much like Bob Dylan, have gone to Frank Sinatra as the source and produced a song about Portsmouth. You can find more at
PS: here’s one sent by Chris – not sure what Pete will think!
