Just in case you missed it, here’s our official music video for our Christmas song last year. We’re currently at 875 views and would love to make it to 1,000 – can you help? If you like it, please consider subscribing and sharing it around. We’ll be re-releasing the track for Christmas 2021… If you like it A LOT, you can download it from this link: https://tonedeftony.hearnow.com/ which will also give the link to play it on Spotify! Thanks for all your support 🙂
Just when I thought I was getting used to doing radio interviews, not only are we beset with technical difficulties (their end this time, I think!) but when they think we’ve gone off air, I get shouted at. The signal’s not great, but it’s well worth listening to for the comedic value – you just can’t make this stuff up – gold dust!
Fuck the pub and hospitality trade, they’re doing fine! What we need to do is put all our efforts and energies into helping the hopelessly underprivileged, under-funded, under-talked-about Spastic Black Transgender Kittens of this world that pay most of the taxes, employ most of the people, give people a safe-haven, raise money for charity, are at the center of most communities, and have been totally overlooked by the government.
It is for this reason that I have made an executive decision to donate ALL the royalties of my song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony to the National Save Spastic Black Transgender Kittens Society.

For those of you on Spotify, I’ve made a special playlist of alternative and funny Christmas songs – it’s amazing how many there have been over the years! I’ll keep adding to the list as I find more, and please send me any of your suggestions…
If you want to help our charity campaign to help all the people in the pub and hospitality trades that are suffering this year, please consider buying our Christmas song:
If the world was a hotel, I’d have checked out long ago.
When it’s mentally a challenge to find reasons to stay alive every day, you know you have a problem. That’s been my life for over four decades. I’ve tried to distract myself between attempts to check out, always focusing on helping other people less fortunate than myself – like this current attempt to raise money and awareness to help the plight of our great British pubs with my ridiculous Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus”. Sometimes it helps, often times it just creates more anguish and frustration. I don’t especially like Christmas, even though I love Christmas songs and sing them all year round, the closer it gets to Christmas, the more depressed I become.
I thought this year, having the song to focus on, would be different, but it isn’t. In fact, I feel more suicidal than ever before, not because of the season, but because I feel my life has already been taken away from me by the nonsensical actions of the government. The reason we are all suffering this year is not because of a new coronavirus strain like the Flu, we are all suffering, have lost our jobs, our livelihoods, our freedoms, our independence, our rights, is a direct result of what we have allowed a handful of politicians to do to us. It sickens me!
I used to look to our government as leadership. I thought what they said and did was true. This year has changed all of that. Now I question everything they say and do, because I know most of it is not true, not based on fact, not based on science, based merely upon whatever they can spin! It disgusts me. I came back to the UK hoping to find something better than I had been experiencing abroad, but was shocked to find we were worse!
Hence my TripAdvisor Rating for anybody thinking of coming to the planet Earth is zero. Don’t come here unless you are planning to attack and destroy us to make way for an intergalactic highway!
As if it wasn’t time consuming and hard enough to go through all the steps and hurdles to create, compose, master, release, register, distribute, and promote an original song – not to mention the personal financial outlay involved – trying to find a charity to partner with has proven just as time consuming, and even more frustrating.
For over two months now we have been trying to find a charity involved with the pub and hospitality industry (which is crying out for help!) to partner with. I think we’ve contacted every single one that we could find via the internet, and have yet to find one willing to work with us! Even though it’s tempting, I won’t embarrass the organisations that have already turned us down for various reasons (including the use of a very mild swear word in our song, all the way up to disagreeing that COVID-19 is like the Flu! To name just a few daft excuses!)
They are all very happy to accept our donation once we’ve done all the hard work, but none want to be associated with us. What does that say about their organisations? To me, it puts them in exactly the same league as our incompetent government that is more than happy to spend our taxpayer money on whims and whimsy, but aren’t prepared to put their own oars in the water and paddle! Likewise the uptake by the hospitality industry in general has been lacking. At this rate, I’m more inclined to give any money we actually will raise to race-nondescript, trans-gender, vegan, teetotaler, car-hating, eco-friendly, tofu-terrorists that look like cute kittens!
Just saying… it’s frustrating.
It’s almost the witching hour of Hallowe’en, or Halloween as some of you might write it. The pubs are still in serious danger – not from ghosts, or ghouls, or witches, but from ridiculous, unfounded (i.e., not based on any scientific FACTS!) acts of stupidity from overpaid, under-worked bureaucrats that have probably never poured a pint in their lives before, let alone done a full days shift in a pub!
Our campaign to save the pubs with our silly Santa song, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony is still gaining momentum – albeit very slowly! Thanks for all your help and support, here’s something a little different… a poem for Hallowe’en, but Christmas related… you be the judge!
FATHER CHRISTMAS’S FIRST THOUGHTS AFTER DISCOVERING MRS. CLAUS HAD BEEN HAVING CONSECUTIVE AFFAIRS WITH ALL THE ELVES IN THE WORKSHOP, AND POTENTIALLY SOME OF THE REINDEER!
Ho, ho, ho…!
After two very long years, we have finally managed to get all our ‘pints’ in a row and release our novelty Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony. And what a year to release it! Who knew back in 2018 that two years later we would all be in the middle of the most f****d-up year of our lives? I don’t think anybody has come out unscathed from this catastrophe, least of all the pub and hospitality trade who we’re trying to help out by raising money from the proceeds of our single.
It is now available to buy, download, stream, pester your DJ to play, etc.
AND WE DO NEED YOUR HELP!
We know it’s going to be an uphill sleigh ride trying to get to this year’s number one slot – especially as we’re going up against a mountain of celebrity, millionaire musicians who’ve all decided to release Christmas music this year! We also know that most people won’t have any extra money this Christmas, but you can support us in many other ways:

Well, what do you know, after creating a radio-friendly version of the song, I’ve managed to work out how to add that version to our music video and create a ‘Snowflake’-friendly version of that too! Now you have a choice: naughty or nice! Very Christmassy, we think.
Thanks once again for all the amazing support our “A ‘PUB’ Is For Life, Not Just For Christmas!” campaign is getting, and the charity Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus” by Tone Def Tony.
We’ve had to change the cover art of our single at short notice, as the last image was too low resolution (bloody technology!) But we think you’ll agree our new artwork is much more Christmassy, flashy, bright, and funny, even though the picture here doesn’t do it justice!

You don’t have to be a pub to download it, everybody can and put them up EVERYWHERE: your local, notice boards, shop windows, etc. 50% of all our download sales go to help support all our pubs that are being hammered by unfair, unjust, and unfounded regulations.
“If our pubs fail, Britain has failed!”
As always, a MASSIVE thank you to Simon Crack of Dead Cool Apps for giving us permission to use the artwork. Check him out at http://www.deadcoolapps.com
