If you want to show your kids an example of how brilliant the Christmas songs were in the 80s, then make sure you don't show them this one! This dreadful single reached No.18 spot on the U.K. singles chart in 1981. The video clip is from a Top Of The Pops performance in December 1981.
Released on Stiff Records, it's pretty obvious that this was 99.9%
likely to have been Ian Dury and The Blockheads. I'm not sure if they
were actually in those costumes, though!
