Supporters Club and Quaintest Show On Earth

Wigan Athletic Supporters Club are pleased to announce the collaboration with Quaintest Show On Earth to release the offivcial appeal single ‘Good Old Days’

The single is available for free via soundcloud, but we and the band are asking for a minimum £1 donation to help us on our way to the next landmark total of £200k. Just click here or copy and paste https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/good-old-days-letshangon-charity-single into your web page.

This is what Quaintest Show on Earth has to say:

It’s such an exciting project and we’re thrilled to be a part of it – and for such an important cause. We saw the reach of our video for Good Old Days (over 100,000 people) and thought “wouldn’t it be amazing if we could reach these people who are so passionate about the town and raise some money for Wigan Athletic”. 

 

Then it all started falling into place, and the WASC have been incredibly co-operative with all our sensible and daft ideas. We can’t wait to make the video for it, we’re hoping to get the club involved and film in parts of the stadium if we can, but we’d like the fans to be involved too. Recording a studio version of the song was really difficult in such a short time and we had to do it in isolation. But it’s the best it can be, and it’s more about the cause than the song itself.

 

You can’t even buy a decent pasty for £1 these days, if everyone just threw in a quid who knows what we could raise for the club. I’ve been a fan since I got into football and used to play in the Saturday football club training sessions for kids at Springfield Park. A world without Wigan Athletic isn’t a normality I’d like to return to, it’s a disgrace what has happened so lets all pitch in and do what we can – even if it’s just by donating a small amount.

 

Michael Frost (who wrote the song) described it as “a love-letter to simpler times in the town. Wiganers like things the way they were, and we’ve got an unbreakable spirit, so I guess I just wanted to capture a few of the recent frustrations about the town’s developments and make a few controversial points – put things in a way that hasn’t been communicated with Wigan music before.”
