London Underground Song - the writers

We know who wrote it

I'm sure most people have now heard the famous
London Underground Song written to the tune of The Jam's Going Underground. I've just received an email from Jakob Whitfield from Imperial College who wrote:

"I noticed that the (by now infamous) rude tube song has been featured on
your website and weblog.
(11th January below) I thought you might like to know that it's from an album of comedy/parody songs written by two medical students at Imperial College, Adam Kay and Suman Biswas. Unfortunately, Adam died earlier this year. Suman is donating all proceeds from sales of the album (�5.50) to Macmillan Cancer Relief. More info and details on ordering the CD can be found at http://www.amateurtransplants.com"

The London Underground song is track 8, nestled between The Menstrual Rag and Mr Burton.

Cheers Jakob now that will put a stop to the rumour that it was our very own Neil and Geoff.
