What do Grandfather clocks, patriotic songs of America and Old Testament have in common with British football?  What are the songs behind the terrace standards like ‘you’re not singing anymore' and 'here we go here we go here we go', and what is the oldest football song in world? 

Paul and The Talking Machine explores the music behind the last modern-day oral traditions and dips into the deep reservoir of Folk poetry to find the origins of over 100 years of terrace song.
