About

RATHER THAN PASS ON BY, WHY NOT JUST SHARE OUR PROJECT,

IT COSTS NOTHING, AND IT'S FOR A GOOD CAUSE...?

We are three working-class, middle-aged blokes (Finch, Davey, & Donnelly) with a fun idea: write and record a silly, yet catchy, Christmas song to raise money to fund a charity idea to make sick people feel better.

Back in 2015, we all jumped in and used our labouring skills to help Finch build a recording studio in his back garden. If you go to our website (free-santa.com) you can read all about it. It took an awful lot of time, money and effort, and about two years to build, but we finished it, and NOW we're finally putting it to good use - well, at least we think so!

I GOT P**SED WITH SANTA CLAUS is a funny Christmas song (well, people have told us it's funny!) along the lines of Baron Knights and other funny Christmas songs of old, and we hope to divert a lot of the money we raise from the song into our charitable idea: "Laughter for Life", bringing comedians into hospital wards and hospice homes to cheer up sick folk and the stressed out, underpaid staff, and hopefully make people that might pass away have a good laugh before they do!

BUT... we need to shoot a music video to help raise awareness, as everything is visual these days. People don't just want to hear something in the radio, they want to watch it all online, so a music video is essential for us to get the message out there.

We've got a bit of dosh already in the kitty, but we'd really love a bit more to make the video really cool, so if you can reach deep into your pocket, or rummage behind the sofa, (or mug a merchant banker!) and pull out some readies that would be amazing!

Thanks for all your love and support, you are wicked...!

PS - we've got some pretty cool prizes for you all...

If you look to the right, you'll see a list of really cool and unique stuff: from copies of the song, to "I got p**sed with Santa Claus" T-shirts, to groovy "P**sed Santa" coffee mugs, to Santa Hats, one lucky pledger will get the original song lyrics (with notes and scriblings and stuff!) signed by Tone Def Tony, and the chance to go out for dinner...!!!

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO:

We think it's important for accountability, what with all the crooked bankers and stuff, to let you know what the money will be spent on:

* We need Christmas costumes: Santa outfit, Rudolph outfit, Elves, The Ho-ho-hos' outfits, and other stuff.

* There's a bunch of us that have to travel up to London and back with all the gear, so travel is a BIG expense!

* It would be nice to have some food while we're up there, nothing fancy, but London's expensive to eat.

* We have two locations picked out for some of the pub scenes, but they're not cheap to hire - that's about half the budget!

* Then we have the editing costs, as we don't want it to look too rubbish after all this effort, but we have some friends that have a production company that are going to do it on the cheap, but it means they have to stop working on jobs that pay them real money!

We think two grand should cover it, but we're covering most of it ourselves! If you don't have any money to part with - and we understand that money is tight for many people - please just show your support by sharing our campaign and talking about the song! Listen out for I GOT P**SED WITH SANTA CLAUS in the radio, or ask your local DJ to play it...!

We REALLY appreciate ALL your help!

Thank YOU!

Risks and challenges

RISKS & CHALLENGES...?!

At OUR age...! To be totally honest, we are on a more upward trajectory than the MARS mission! We are learning as we go along, but we're on track to release the song November 26th, and it would be so cool to have a wee music video to accompany it.

We're really just trying to 'push the envelope' and see how far we can go with our daft project. We managed to build a half-decent recording studio, so we did, so how hard can it be without the help of a huge record label to release a cracking good Christmas song???
