as slow club prepare for another fittingly festive concert at the union chapel, dropping down our musical chimneys is their very own christmas ep; 'christmas thanks for nothing' is released on moshi moshi records. rebecca and charles take turns recreating two darlene love christmas classics. charles delivering a stripped down take on 'all alone on christmas' - the e street band assisted number from 'home alone 2' - while rebecca unleashes a full throated rendition of the phil spector penned 'christmas (please come home)'. last year's free download single 'christmas tv' proved an unlikely live favourite this summer, and is included here as an added stocking filler, alongside brand new tunes 'christmas, thanks for nothing' and 'it's christmas' and 'you are boring me'. all are quintessential slow club; bittersweet, humorous and intensely lovable.
