From the minds that performed the music of the Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy television series comes a new pull at the twisted Christmas cracker. Loose Tapestries whose songs include Luxury Comedy Theme and Surrounded By Shape Shifting Werewolves offer pockets full of mistletoe, a disco brussels sprout and running naked covered in goose fat in Can’t Wait for Christmas.
When it comes to weird and demented holiday tunes, Can’t Wait for Christmas ranks among past songs like Ricky Tomlinson’s Christmas My Arse, The Goodies’ Father Christmas Do Not Touch, and The Goons’ I’m Walking Backwards for Christmas. Britain certainly has a lot to answer for.
Loose Tapestries was formed in 2012. Their members are Noel Fielding (of The Mighty Boosh fame), Sergio Pizzorno (of band Kasabian), Ben Kealey, and Tim Carter.
Their album Loose Tapestries Presents the Luxury Comedy Tapes is available on MP3, streaming services, and iTunes.
