If you fancy a giggle, there's a Manics Christmas single being released for a free download on 1st December.
James would make a good Santa these days.
'To celebrate this season of goodwill we will be giving away our Christmas single 'The Ghosts of Christmas' on our website, and newsletter, from 1 December completely free. So to anyone who has bought our records, seen our gigs, read our reviews, joined our website or given us awards Thank You for a special year.
The song is old school Christmas, the anti X Factor, for us it's actual fun. Hope you enjoy the song and the tour.
Nicky Wire, James and Sean

So yes, it IS a slow news day.
