Funny Looking Angels [Import][CD]
2011 holiday release from this collaboration between Editors vocalist Tom Smith and Andy Burrows (Razorlight/I Am Arrows). Both share a love of the classic Christmas songs and a fascination with the idea of Christmas records of the past, good and bad. Feeling that the innocence of the Christmas song had been lost in commercial plans and TV-sponsored drivel, the plan to make a traditional Christmas record - the kind of album that goes on after Christmas lunch for a singalong and a slump on the sofa as the wintry weather peeks through the windows - took on a life of it's own. Funny Looking Angels is above all a record born out of friendship. A mix of original tracks and covers chosen because they remind the protagonists of Christmas in direct or oblique ways, the album features vocals from both Tom and Andy and an eclectic choice of cover versions from Yazoo's 'Only You' and Black's 'Wonderful Life' to the Longpigs 'On and On' and cult Birmingham band Delta's 'Funny Looking Angels'.
