Listeners incensed at the broadcaster's cost-cutting measure have set up a Facebook campaign that encourages fans to buy the indie veterans' track 'Joy Division Oven Gloves.' They aim to get the song to number six for the week beginning April 12.
This would be a first for the band from Birkenhead, yet to score a mainstream hit since the release of 1986 debut album 'Back In the DHSS,' despite regularly topping the indie charts with the likes of 'Dickie Davies Eyes.'
Pro-6 Music campaigners aim to emulate the success of a previous online campaign that propelled Rage Against the Machine's 'Killing In The Name' to the Christmas number one last December ahead of 'X Factor' winner Joe McElderry.
Why only aim for number six, though? On Facebook, campaigners explain their objective is to spread the word about their beloved station -- and it is in the underachieving spirit of Half Man Half Biscuit, who "blew out an appearance on prime-time TV in 1986 in order to attend a Tranmere Rovers game."
