Track Of The Day #631: Bent Cousin – Fuck you It’s Christmas

untitled (120)
If there’s just one incy wincy complaint to be made about this particular Christmas hangover, its the title. I mean calling your seasonal winter warmer ‘Fuck You it’s Christmas’ was always going to get us sitting up on our hind quarters begging to hear. But then there are those who are a little less tolerant and a little more of the 1930’s who perhaps understandably when faced with such blatant attention grabbling use of Anglo Saxon language, might well cry foul – hello BBC.

Which is a shame really because this cutie is a bit of merry miserablism, that finds Pat and Amelia (better known as Bent Cousin) lobbing verbal snowballs at each other over a very un-neighbourly fence, as a result of a rain drizzled and rather awkward teen break up. Which in truth cleverly echoes Kirsty and Shane’s yuletide woe (best Christmas record ever. Discuss.) albeit re-imagined as were by a very young ‘Tigermilk’ era Belle and Sebastian. Essential ear gear for those with ears frequently tuned to imprints such as Matinee, Fortuna pop, Elefant etc…. I believe it’s a free download – (are you sure)….
