Well so far the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil has provided us with a veritable feast of football, with some high scoring matches and drama both on and off the pitch. Spain's shock exit and the Netherlands' dramatic win over Australia were perhaps the two biggest stories on today's news broadcasts. Another exciting development is our new logo, designed by Andy Tilley who is better known for his comic strips at http://miswiredcomics.com/.
Meanwhile, back in the United Kingdom, Professor David Preece of Teesside University brought to our attention the latest single by popular beat combo The Merseybeats, a re-release of their 1980s hit ‘This is Merseybeat’ (a medley of songs that the band has recorded throughout their career) plus two bonus tracks, ‘Poor Boy From Liverpool’ and ‘Chained to You’.
The relevance of this for Soccer-Mad Boffins is that all profits will be donated to the Hillsborough Family Support Group, a charity established after the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster, in which many football fans were tragically killed.
The single is available on CD and as a digital download, please visit the Merseybeats official website for more info:
