The Crookes

Sheffield band The Crookes have a creative card up their sleeve when it comes to the spirit of giving this Christmas.

With many picking them as a new talent to watch, including fellow Sheffield native Richard Hawley who called them "brilliant", The Crookes have a growing fanbase that the band are keen to reward this Christmas. And it's a true heartfelt gift from them to us, they've recorded the series of festive songs in the living room of their shared house on a trusty four track.

On the site,, they have set up an advent calendar that gives a free festive themed song each day until the big day. Beginning on the 13th December, the songs are hosted with different music websites around the web with offering up today's effort 'Born Under A Bad Sign'.
