Ho ho ho. We nearly made it, everyone. OK, so we’re in tier n+1 where n is a large number, we may not be able to see who we thought we were going to….
Forget that. Christmas innit. So here’s the annual festive edition of the show. There’s a lot of ‘lonely christmas’ vibes out there for obvious reasons, but we’ve tried not to go too strong on that and have some diversity of thought. Picks this year are from The Sinclairs – Rat Scabies’ new(ish) band – and our chum Faithful Johannes, while we have two tracks from Fightmilk’s festive EP which other than these two original tracks features a bunch of covers. Speaking of which, Talkboy have a cover in here too, just before we end in the traditional manner, with a dodgy transformer.
