The Wombats

Is This Christmas

Unsurprisingly, The Wombats have failed in the eternal competition to write a punk rock festive song as good as Fairytale Of New York. Not least because Christmas chez Wombats sounds just like every other ADHD guitar belch they’ve expelled but with over-excitable sleigh bells and lyrics about Back To The Future re-runs on telly. It’s enough to bring out your inner Scrooge.
