Blog: Chris MercerSave the pub (and buy some ear plugs)

Chris Mercer | 16 June 2010

Just when you thought things couldn't get worse for UK pubs, someone has released a country rock song in their honour.

Songwriter Bob James has penned the ditty, concisely titled "What Can We Do Now (Save The Great British Pub)".

Ploughing through a well-trodden rockabilly chord sequence, the song's chorus kicks in with: "What can we do now, we can have some fun, what can we do now, down the pub..."

You can download the song here. Ear defenders are not included.
