Giving us the goods with the glam-rock Christmas bop we’ve all been waiting for, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard have released ‘Christmas Is Coming (We All Know The Score)’.
Speaking on the song, the band’s Tom Rees says, “Weirdly enough this Christmas song was written many years ago but I suppose the absolute grinding nightmare we call consumer capitalism never really takes a sick day even during a global pandemic, so at least one positive take away from writing sarcastic songs about capitalism is that the situation is almost definitely only going to get worse and we can only become more alarmingly relevant as each year goes by - all of this considered I did just buy a gigantic new computer screen from Currys/PC World (another great conglomerate, on a side note, I have never actually bought anything physically in PC World, because they never have it there, I think they need to change their name, they can’t advertise themselves as a WORLD OF PC’S without actually having what you want, but I digress) so I’m not quite immune to the charm of it all, I just like to nag more than anything.”
Alongside the track, the band have also announced that they’ll be playing socially-distanced shows in January as part of Independent Venue Week, performing at London’s Lafayette on 28th January and Leeds’ The Brudenell Social Club on 29th January!
