NEW ‘A PUB Is For Life…” Poster

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.

poster snapshot (2)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

Music Video Premiere Tonight 9pm

It may be a little early to start spreading the Christmas cheer, but most people I know just want this year to be over and put it behind us. These are unprecedented times we have all been thrown into and many long for days of old when life was ‘normal’. If you remember Monty Python, the Carry On films, Benny Hill, and the like, then we think you’ll truly love our Christmas song contender this year, “I Got P*$$ed with Santa Claus”, a funny, light-hearted knees-up telling the story of what might happen if you went on a bit of a bender with Father Christmas!

A full week before our song is officially released, we’ve managed to do a ‘Blue Peter’ job on our music video, and you can watch it live here from 9pm tonight (October 16th)

Not a whiff of a sausage roll in sight! But lots of beer and booze, which is just as well, as we are hoping to do our bit and help the struggling pub trade weather the storm. By downloading our track and asking your favourite DJ to play it on air (they might have to beep out the naughty bits!) you’ll be helping us give away 50% of our royalties to help those that have been laid off, are struggling to stay open, have been forced to close, etc.

Where would we be without our pubs?

People seem to forget all the money pubs help raise for good causes, and it’s in the hundred million pound range! Now they need our help. Don’t forget our history… for hundred of years the great British pub has been a center of society, a meeting place, somewhere to conduct business, politicians met and drank there (that’s why there are so many bars in the House of Commons – oh, and they’re not shut!) it’s a place of laughter, music, culture… need I go on?

Do your bit to pitch in, forget about all your Covid-woes and have a quick time out and laugh at our comedic, slap-stick, old school music video.

Tone Def Tony TV launched on YouTube

Yes, it’s true! Tone Def Tony now has his own YouTube TV channel to help promote the Christmas #1 contender, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus“. You can hear a teaser sample of the song before the official release date of October 24th, and over the coming weeks we’ll be adding more fun stuff to keep you up-to-date with everything that’s going on along the journey of getting this independently produced novelty Christmas song into the charts. Click on the track cover picture below to go to the channel.

Remember, by downloading a copy of our track you’ll be helping us to bail out the independent pub trade, as 50% of our royalties goes to help them out, and if you help us to get to the Christmas #1 slot we’ll double that and give it all away!!!

We’re Already In The Local Press…!!!

A very big ‘THANK YOU!’ to Sean McPolin from Kent Online for being the first journalist to pick up our amazing story to help bail out the pubs! It’s really exciting to already have a mention in the local media, and hopefully others will follow very soon as word spreads.

You can read the article here.

There’s still time to be part of our music video. Read this post. And we’d love to hear from any pubs and punters that want to help spread the word and make us this year’s Christmas Number One…!

Do you love karaoke? Do you love Christmas? Want a comedic break from all this COVID-lock-down-BS? Keep reading…

We’re looking for unique and interesting people to participate remotely to help create a music video to go along with our novelty Christmas song, “I Got P*$$ed With Santa Claus”, we’ve created to raise money for the struggling pub and hospitality industry. This is a no-pay opportunity, but if you’re game for a laugh, and want to be featured (and of course mentioned!) in our music video, please drop us a line.

We’ll send everybody who’s interested an MP3 (please respect our copyright and don’t share!) of the song in advance of the release so you’ll hear it before anyone else and (obviously) you’ll have it to sing along to. We’ll then splice all the bits and pieces together to create what we hope will be a really funny video and offer up some comic relief for what could possibly go down as the worst Christmas in history, especially if Boris decides to cancel it and keep us all caged up again! Many thanks for your interest.

Ideas of what we’re after:

  • Dress up in your best Christmas get-up!
  • Some sad kids with no presents under the tree…?
  • Any real Santas out there?
  • Pub scenes!!!
  • You get the idea, be creative…!

We’ll pick the best ones and let you know you’ve been selected.

Christmas 2019 Has Started Early!

Song CoverBelated Happy New Year to you all!

We trust your 2019 has started as well as ours has, and we wish all of you all the very best for the upcoming year. We’re excited, as we’re jumping right back into the studio and picking up where we left off last year to put the icing on the cake of our Santa Song…!

Having experienced the equivalent vertical learning curve as the Apollo 15 Space Mission last year, we are determined this time around to learn from our mistakes and get a proper head-start on things! We are, after all, taking on the likes of the big, multi-million pound music companies to compete for a No. 1 spot in the Christmas Top 40.

Ambitious…?

You bet ya! But if you don’t shoot for the stars, you’ll never get out the toilet! We’ve licked our wounds, drunk a lot more beer, pooled our brain cells, and we’re now ready to get back in the studio this Saturday to put down the polish to go with the puke and spit from the holiday season!

If you go to the SONG tab on this website you can hear a rough cut of the song as it currently stands, and if you like it, please follow us, like us, share us, and get on board nice and early this year for what will be an amazing trip into Christmas music history…!

We thank you for your continued support, and we’ll keep you updated as much as possible throughout the year…

 

Christmas Is Cancelled

Besieged by more delays than British Rail, technical issues, unreliable session musicians, and a general lack of interest and support for the song, it looks like our five month journey is nearing an end for this year.

Tony Climax

Soldiering away as always, Tony was out and about in London trying to drum up support for our Kickstarter, but with under two days to go and only 13% of the project funded, we have decided to shelve the video idea.

We would dearly love to thank the five people that have backed our project, but you’ll be glad to hear that because we went for an all-or-nothing package, you won’t be debited any funds.

With only 13 days until our proposed official release date to go, the reality is starting to set in that this will probably not be our Christmas to release the song.

We have to say it’s a very big blow. Perhaps we bit off more than we could chew. However, as we still don’t have a finished track, and we should really be in the studio mastering it, it really looks like Christmas is cancelled this year!

It’s time to lick our wounds, crack open some booze, sit back and look at what we did wrong and could have done better. Personally, it’s totally knocked the wind out of my sails. I thought I had enough strength and energy to go the distance, but one thing after another has just battered me down, and to be honest, my heart just isn’t in it. I always said to the lads from the beginning, we’ll run with this as far as we can as long as it remains FUN… well, the fun stopped a few days ago.

Thank you for all your support. Just a heads-up, we’ll be off air for the rest of the year…

Who Will Be The First DJ To Play Our Song?

*** KICKSTARTER NOW LIVE – LAST FEW DAYS ***

In the run-up to the official release date (November 26th) of our killer Christmas hit song, I GOT PISSED WITH SANTA CLAUS, we got to wondering which DJ will be the first to play it ? We doubt any BBC DJ will be brave enough to play our slightly politically incorrect song on air, but you never know! Early tests on unsuspecting members of the public have shown that it’s catchy and annoying enough to stick in your head!

Chris Evans
The ‘Radio Rebel’ Chris Evans

Our money is on Chris Evans to be the ground-breaker, though. The ‘rebel of radio’ is known for not listening to the boring nah-sayers and doing his own thing. But the big question is, will he like it enough to play it on air? Music is a funny thing. Something that one person loves, another person hates. Perhaps the ‘Carrot-top of chat’ isn’t a fan of Christmas? Could he be a ginger-Grinch? Only time will tell.

Either way, we are happy to have our song ready for release and look forward to putting you all out of your misery. The launch date is only days away now!

Thanks, as ever, for all your continued support and encouragement. We could not have made this happen without all of your help.

*** KICKSTARTER NOW LIVE – LAST FEW DAYS ***

Until Next Time!
