Last year Emmy The Great & Tim Wheeler set out to do the impossible: to record a Christmas album whilst largely omitting much of the schmalz associated with this merry season. On ‘This Is Chrismtas‘ they succeeded in releasing a thoroughly enjoyable album. Having already toured the album in 2011 they were back at it this month with a string of fun filled performances across the UK.

Of all the tracks the one I found myself coming back to most often was the delightful “Zombie Christmas“. The absurd alternative scenario presented still cracks me up so I was pleased to discover the duo went and filmed a video to go along with it.

Add this to my favourite alternative Christmas anthems along with this excellent The Hives & Cyndi Lauper duet.
