A great cover of my all time favourite Christmas song! It's not actually Motörhead though - it's Lemmy, Dave Grohl, and Billy Gibbons. ;)

So - you spotted my deliberate mistake then (ahem..) ;)

Great version of a great song though.

Been looking for this for ages, knew i should have looked down the back of our fridge sooner, such a obvious place to look! :dur: Anyway before i ramble on till next christmas, here is 'White Christmas(not the shitty recording)' for you all, for next year!

Also have a recording of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town' but its not great sound

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's not The Wildhearts. :ooh:

Really!

I know, and it does sound a bit like him. If only there were an ex-Yo-yo on here we could ask...? ;)

You wouldn't believe the amount of covers of that fucking song I trawled through on iTunes trying to find that version.

Does anyone have that live recording? I use to have it, though a long time lost now. :hmmm:

All I really remember is that I was quite drunk and Danny couldn't remember the words despite reading them off a bit of paper.

I don't recall it being anything other than a fairly straight cover, though I'd imagine there's a bootleg of it somewhere to prove me wrong. :?
