Hygiene Christmas Single Available Now

Remember a time when Top of the Pops was untainted by institutional complicity in the abuses of celebrity nonces? When Tops of the Pops was a metaphorical hearth, gathered 'round to bathe in the glow of Christmas merriment? Hygiene do. With their new single 'Christmas Do,' they hearken back to a simpler time. A time when Christmas meant Slade, Wizzard, Elton John, Mud and Showaddywaddy on the radio at least 300 times a day. Sleigh-bells are a-ringing' in this tribute to that most sacred of Christmas rituals: the office party. As Hygiene sing "We're gonna have a Christmas Do," you can tell they really mean it. Singer Nat King Dole IS ‘Mr. Christmas’! It’s as if he has been possessed all-at-once by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future (particularly the one played by David Johansen in Scrooged). 'Christmas Do' is so rousing that it will have even the most hard-hearted scrooges, Crass fans and Islamic extremists in your family wishing ‘merry xmas everybody’! An instant Christmas classic, it is sure to feature in Morrisons adverts and Eastenders Christmas specials for decades to come.

Each record has been lovingly hand-pressed on festive red vinyl and comes packaged in a special Christmas card signed personally by the members of Hygiene. This would make the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone in your life. If your life lacks that special someone and you’re ‘lonely this Christmas,’ treat yourself to a copy of 'Christmas Do' and you might think twice about topping yourself on Christmas day. This December, ‘step into Christmas’ with Hygiene and you’ll ‘wish it could be Christmas everyday’!

Available in the UK from Static Shock and in the US from Sorry State. Order now to avoid disappointment.
