Norfolk band’s Olympic anthem London’s Calling
A Norfolk band is hoping to go for gold with an Olympic anthem in honour of this year's Games.
Five piece band The Colour have written London's Calling and are now in discussions about performing the song at Olympic-related events.
Drummer Scott Field, 39, said: 'We wanted to do something big and bold for the Olympics, it's really snowballing.'
Officials from Norwich City Council are discussing a live performance of the track during the Olympic torch's overnight party in Chapelfield Gardens on July 4.
The band is also currently in negotiations with organisers at the Olympic Park to perform London's Calling during events at the Games.
