We’re past Halloween and we’re past Bonfire Night… So in the UK that means we can start preparing for Christmas, right? Well the Too Pure Singles Club are definitely in the festive mood as they’ve already launched ‘Holidays Are Heavy’ by Menace Beach. But a good Christmas wouldn’t be without the classic tunes, especially if they’re from the 70s and 80s. So it’s up to fellow Leeds rockers Cowtown to take on Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmas Time.’
It’s actually a pretty faithful rendition of the holiday staple, with the band not veering too far away from the kitsch and familiar melody of McCartney’s hit. Instead, they add a few psych flourishes too make the sugary jangly nature of the original pack a bit more punch.
Anyway, you can’t argue with that amazing old-school Christmas photo on the cover, can you?
Listen to ‘Wonderful Christmas Time’ below.
