Swindon Town Football Club is delighted to announce that Chaney, one of Swindon’s most promising up-and-coming artists, will be taking over Saturday’s matchday playlist.
The club are constantly looking for ways to improve the matchday experience at SN1 and are excited to see how Chaney – a lifelong Swindon Town fan and ever-present in the Town End – can help to continue that effort.
Chaney has put together the majority of this playlist but needs the help of the Town faithful to put the finishing touches to the tunes over the tannoy ahead of Saturday’s fixture against Mansfield Town.
He wants suggestions for the final two songs to add to the playlist as well as ideas from around the Energy Check County Ground for this weekend’s goal music.
He will go through your suggestions and pick the best two for the playlist and will decide on what should be blasted out when the Robins score.
To put your songs forward simply use #STFCPlay or #STFCGoal with your idea and our resident DJ will pick the best of the bunch.

Chaney released his debut EP #SaveSwindon via Skint on August 24th. ‘Save Swindon’ has become something of a mission statement for Chaney (aka Theo Altieri) – a call to his hometown’s music scene to reach for something better, something more.
In recent months, inspired by the #SAVEFABRIC campaign, Theo launched a club night in Swindon (#SAVESWINDON), which featured a mix of DJs and live performances by the man himself. The raucous nights have garnered quite the reputation locally, moving to ever increasing capacity venues. Going forward, Theo has plans to take the ‘Save’ format on tour, to bigger towns and cities.
Talking about the EP, Chaney says: “My #SaveSwindon EP doesn't necessarily sum up "life in Swindon", but more growing up and "life in a small town" - which for me (and half the nation) is pretty boring, but also pretty special. There is a life (for many) outside of the bigger cities, the penthouse apartments overlooking the Thames, expensive independent coffee shops, major record labels, millionaire drug-dealers - and I sometimes think these lives are over-shadowed or pushed aside."
