"If You've Got A History Book At Home, Take It Out, Throw It In The Bin ... It's Worthless."

The public voting might be over but there's still a lot at stake in the ongoing Curry Capital 2011 competition. Our team of TATTGOC analysts may have cast a cursory eye over the competition last week, but despite all that investigative excavation, the Tramps were still wrongfooted, blindsided and creosote-eyed by this slice of campaign brilliance: 



Let's disregard the terrible radio DJ "rapping" at the end and simply agree that this is a masterstroke by the Wolverhampton team; a catchy pop hit redeployed with appropriately spiced-up lyrics – "Third last year ... we're going for gold" – and some genuinely excellent singing. It certainly raises the stakes for all the cities who remain in serious Curry Capital contention. And for Glasgow, a city steeped in musical history that is also proud to host the MOBO awards for the forseeable, it does seem like a missed trick ...

(But then: has Glasgow ever made a similarly effective video promo to support a local cause?)

Re-watching the Glasgow Diamonds video I was shocked to see the double decker behind them turn into George Square from St Vincent Place - it's a one-way these days. Crazy times back in '86...
