After taking virality to another level with their tribute to Essendon footy star Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti, and their follow up single ’Richo’, Melbourne punk-rock band PICKET PALACE have released a full footy album, appropriately named ‘THE FOOTY RECORD’.
‘THE FOOTY RECORD’ began almost as a joke; a couple of affectionate punk rock tributes to the band's favourite footballers, written mostly to amuse themselves. But once they introduced a couple of those tracks to their live set everyone fell in love with their raucous, ridiculous energy, and the band realised that they were too good to be wasted as unheralded throwaways.
"As undeniably silly as some of these songs are, they are rooted in something absolutely sincere and honest, and something that turns out to be enormously resonant for a lot of people.” - Jack O'Connell.
‘It was a chance to marry my two great loves: rock n roll and footy. All I ever wanted was free tickets to the tote and the G’ - Seamus
The first song on the album ‘All I Ever Want To Do’ is a track filled with childlike-wonder about the experience of going to the MCG, “putting up with shit seats and mid-strength beer because you’re just stoked to be there”.
