Christmas isn’t far now and the build up has been made all the better with an alternative Christmas offering from Palma Violets. After a successful year churning out Pub Rock classics with their second album, ‘Danger in the Club’ and making our ‘Top Ten Songs of 2015’ list with ‘English Tongue’. ‘Last Christmas on Planet Earth’ doesn’t stray far from the pub with a sing-a-long chorus to rival any classic Christmas song. The joyful, yuletide marching groove is juxtaposed with fairly sinister lyrics and a music video to match. Watch below to see a drunken reveler stumble into the wrong party (Studio 180) where ‘The Fairytale of New York’ turns into ‘The Passion of the Christ’.
Order the limited edition 7” from Rough Trade here, which features a kid’s version of Palmas classic, ‘All The Garden Birds’. Also check out their advent calendar here where we’ve got a downloadable poster behind door 16!
