Fatboy Refuses Political Party Request
British dance star FATBOY SLIM has refused a request from Britain's Conservative Party to use his 1995 track HAPPINESS during their annual political conference. The party, lead by DAVID CAMERON, asked the DJ's record label for permission to play the single - released under the name PIZZAMAN - at the conference in Bournemouth, England. The musician, real name NORMAN COOK, is staunchly left-wing and refused to let the right-wing party use his track. He previously blasted the Labour Party for using his song RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW in their election campaign two years ago (04). Cook says, "At least the Conservatives had the decency to ask, unlike Labour. "The Tories, however, remain my least favourite political party - so an empathic no is the answer. "Is Happiness going to be the new direction for the Conservatives? We shall wait and see."
