York teachers release second World Cup song

First published in News

A PAIR of York teachers have released another single to commemorate England's World Cup efforts.

The song, called The England Pain, is Disco Mister's downbeat tribute to the team, who failed to win a single game in the first round of the World Cup and were knocked out in the first stage of the competition.

Huntington School teachers Robin Parmiter and Ian Wilson released the track, with its comical video, as a follow-up to their first single Bring It Home, which was named the fifth bestselling England World Cup song of 2014 by Amazon last week.

Launching the video on Disco Mister's Facebook page, Robin said: "We wanted to mark England's early departure from Brazil 2014 in the only way we know how - to write a song and get our amazing friend Karl Elwell to direct, shoot and cut a video for it! We hope you enjoy it - it might even cheer you up a little bit in these difficult circumstances."

Proceeds from the band's first song were donated to a variety of charities, including The Ann Maguire Fund, set up in memory of the murdered Leeds school teacher, Cancer Research and The Bobby Moore Fund.

The video was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday, and has already been viewed almost 800 times, while the video for Bring It Home, which was uploaded in May, is close to 100,000 views.
