They say Christmas is a time for giving and Squarehead certainly aren’t ones to break with tradition. As a thank you to all those who “came to the gigs, bought our album or just ‘liked’ our Facebewk” the lads have covered Darlene Love’s festive classic ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ and made it available to all (good or bad) as a free download. Complete with backing vocals from the newly enlisted ‘Squarettes’ – Saileóg O’Halloran and Lucy Smyth – it trumps any Lynx boxset or last minute Kris Kindle gift that’s for sure…
On a similar note The Gorgeous Colours also posted a cover this week – trying their hand at John Lennon’s ‘Real Love’ on the anniversary of the great man’s death. A fitting tribute.
