Birmingham was actually first! Helsinki was the biggest before Chicago, and the best tune IMHO. Many many of them have been done by the same set of artists -- Tollervo and Oliver -- and they know of a good dozen more that have sprung up without their involvement.
They're off to Singapore next to create one there.

In case people aren't aware: This is at least the 3rd "Complaints Choir"
project out there. I think Helsinki was 1st, and there was at least one
UK one, and maybe some in the states before. Google/YouTube should
provide more info.
I love the idea. I've not yet watched Chicago, but I _loved_ Helsinki.
Didn't much care for the UK one I saw, sadly. Not enough text.
