Hurrah! The Christmas Number One has arrived.
I’ve always loved These New Puritans. From their decorative faeryland armour, obsession with lyrical binary code, excessively ferocious delivery and just all-round oddness.
They’re quite simply one of these isles’ most fascinating bands.
So when X-Factor balloon head Louis Walsh announced on the QT last week that he was planning on scuppering Joe McElderrey‘s charge to the top of the Christmas charts by funding their latest festive message ‘We Want War‘ we had to raise a wee whoop.
So, here it is, in all its angry swimming, running, flying glory. Oh, and if anyone can snaffling up one of those white wicker wolf headdresses for me please do.
