Shipwrecked’s Sam Bush is driving the challenge through his music community website to try and defeat the high trousered X-Factor man from getting another guaranteed Xmas Number 1 this year.

Music community website is launching a campaign to dethrone Simon Cowell from this years predicted Christmas Number One slot.

With the latest series of X-Factor seeing new levels of support thanks to the publicity stunt of firing and re-hiring Louis Walsh there is little doubt in bookies mind that Simon Cowell will once again be unleashing a commercial music beast upon the Christmas Number One market.

Sam Bush of Shipwrecked fame is heading up the quest to find people brave and bold enough to choose an unsigned UK band, take them to the Xmas Number One slot and launch them into the music stratosphere.

Members of the public and music fans alike are being encouraged to sign up, for free, to the website and tell as many of their friends as possible. On 20th September 2007 the fun will begin as the online community goes in search of the UK’s hottest unsigned band and tries to take them to the Xmas Number 1 slot.

Sam is planning to hold a VIP Launch Party very shortly so that the community can come together and share ideas about spreading the word.

The plan is that the community will make all the decisions needed about what the band does from the song that is selected to go for the Number 1 slot right through to the producers behind it and the art work on the CD.

Speaking about his quest Sam Bush said,

“This is our chance to dethrone Simon Cowell and show TV bosses that they no longer have a stranglehold over the UK’s Christmas Number 1 slot”.

“I want everyone who cringes through the hours of X-Factor TV and winces at the cynical stunts they pull off to rise up and get behind”.
