Younghusband have recorded a new version of 'I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You'.
Christmas can often be a painful time for music fans. Slade, Mud, Wizzard... it can sometimes seem that the festive period has a pre-ordained soundtrack, clicking into gear with mind-numbing regularity.
Thankfully, Younghusband have stepped into the fray. The psychedelic cosmonauts returned with 'Dromes' earlier this year, an album packed to the brink with exotic thrills and Motorik-inspired rhythms.
Playing a festive show for Sonic Cathedral, the band unveiled a cover of 'I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You'. Handing out free mince pies, each member of the crowd was given a download code in the wrapper with which to grab an mpFREE of their very own.
Penned by cult 60s songwriter Margo Guryan, 'I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You' is a dose of expertly crafted bubblegum pop put through the shredder.
Ramping up the volume, Younghusband place their own stamp on the track while remaining respectful to the Claudine Longent-recorded original.
