All Fur Coat & No Knickers

Album: The Boy Bands Have Won (2008)
  • This song criticizes the commercialization of football (soccer). The "Theatre of Dreams (TM)" is Old Trafford, the legendary stadium of Manchester United. "Stretford End" is it's main stand, it was once measured that the roar of the crowd from it was louder than a Jumbo Jet taking off.
  • Mentioned in this song: "Lord Bono" and The Edge from U2.
  • From the Chumba's official website: "Funny how you can trademark the juxtaposition of the words 'theatre' and 'dreams.' When George Best played there it was just a football ground! Yes, Jayne Mansfield visited Armley Prison in 1967, sat on the bonnet of a Rolls Royce at the main doors and joked with the warders before her £4000-a-week appearance at Batley Variety Club." >>
