For The Bristol City / Cheddar Cheese
- One For The Bristol City (Guy Fletcher, Doug Flett;
new lyrics by The Wurzels)
- Cheddar Cheese (Banner, Budd)
& Musical Director: Ed Welch
Produced: Bob Barrett
For The Bristol City (described
on the single sleeve as 'the official Bristol City F.C.
song") was The Wurzels paying homage to their favourite
football team, Bristol City. It was released the year
after Bristol City had been promoted to Division 1 (what
would now be the Premiership) at the end of the 1975/76
season. By 1977 they were established in the top flight,
and One For The Bristol City was released as
the official club anthem.
song takes the music of their 1976 single Morning
Glory and adds new words all about Bristol
City. The lyrics are printed on the reverse of the sleeve
(pictured right, enlarged below).
song is the tune that the team run out to at home matches
at Ashton Gate. The band re-issued
the song in 2007 to celebrate the clubs' promotion
back to the Championship (old Second Division) from
the First Division (the old Third Division). This time
b-side Cheddar Cheese was probably chosen as
such because it is one of only three other songs that
The Wurzels have recorded which mention Bristol City,
and is the one which was more complimentary to the club!
