THE PUKES - EXMAS
Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace on earth
and goodwill to all men. But what happens when your ex turns up to
visit the kids? Well punk rock ukulele band THE PUKES have imagined
the repercussions in their festive single "EXMAS".
Whilst originally predominantly female, it seems like some men have entered the fold with the present line up consisting of Andrea, Chris, Cil, Clara, Debs, Dee Dee, Esme, Gareth, Jenny, Kate, Laura, Lindsay, Lorna, Paul, Ria, Sachiko and Saul.
And so they set the scene of this modern day nightmare:
Him and his beer belly
I think we've all had similar experiences (if only with the rogue grandfather or wayward brother in law). The Pukes set this tale of modern day Broken Britain to a foot tapping ukulele backdrop and a repetitive, but damn catchy, chorus.
Will it ever rival Slade's perennial festive offering? Who knows, who cares! Just sit back, put your feet up, open the cider and have yourself a punk rock Christmas.
