UK Christmas Number One

It's official! Rage Against The Machine are UK Christmas Number One, beating the X Factor!

If only we had the same victory last year with Jeff Buckley!

I think The Guardian sum it up quite nicely for me.

Christmas is nearly upon us!

Here is an amazing video from the Fleet Foxes, appropriate for the season!

Tonight the UK Christmas Number One is being announced, and due to a lot of dedicated and organised heavy metal fans, X Factor winner Joe McElderry's 'The Climb' is going head-to-head with Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name'!

Apparently, Rage is beating Joe in the charts at the moment. This could make history. The first X Factor Christmas single not to go straight to number one! I really, really hope so.

Quilla Constance ' Snow Daddy'

About seven months ago I introduced you to the fabulousness and outrageousness that is Quilla Constance.

Now I am delighted to be able to tell you that her single, 'Snow Daddy' will be released - very appropriately, may I add - on the 23rd of December, 2009!

To celebrate the release, Quilla is throwing a launch party at Proud Camden, Chalk Farm Road in NW1 London on 23/12/2009, from 7:30PM - 4AM. Everyone is invited, and the tickets are pretty cheap from what I gather. You can get them here.

Also at the launch, Quilla - whose costumes are designed by Holly Lloyd and Debbie Waygood - will be showcasing the video for 'Snow Daddy', along with a remix by Drew Blake, who's worked with Kanye West. Sounds pretty darn cool to me!

You can listen to 'Snow Daddy' at her psychedelicmyspace page. I never get bored of this track, I discover something new I like about it every time I listen, kind of like David Bowie's 'Life On Mars'.

Quilla Constance is seriously exciting right now, she is definitely nothing like anything that's in the charts, which seem to be dominated by indie, pseudo-folk at the moment, whereas Quilla is daring, edgy and punky! This is just what music in the UK needs!
