Another “Christmas” record which has nothing to do with Christmas, and wasn’t even released for Christmas. It actually came out in August – so brilliant timing for the back-to-school market. I’m sure all the primary kids were getting down to this. Jim and William Reid of The Jesus And Mary Chain basically overdub a load of feedback-y guitars to The Sugarcubes‘ signature song, so in theory, it’s two of the greatest alternative groups of the late 80s on one record, but… they’re better separately.
Still, it is Christmas… this time…
