Cambridge United’s Coconuts anthem gets dance remix treatment
Cambridge United fan Martin John, a local music producer, is to release a dance remix of U’s anthem I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts.
The track, out on January 1, is Martin’s thank you to the players and management for achieving promotion to League One.
“Unable to celebrate Cambridge’s fantastic promotion season in the conventional way – chanting as we spill into Newmarket Road, heading to the pub, celebrating with friends – I headed to my home studio and started messing around with the song to see what happened if I put a dance beat behind it,” Martin said. “The dance remix was born.”
He added: “My hope is that my contemporary spin on the song makes it more euphoric, singable and danceable. If one day the fans in the Newmarket Road end are chanting, ‘I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch...’, then I’ll consider my job done!”
I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts (Dance Remix) is available to pre-order now. To find out more, visit martinjohnmusic.co.uk.
