Hunks – The Magic Of Christmas (feat. Various Artists)

December 8, 2009

Tis nearly that time of christmas and many people are subjected to the same christmas songs over and over again. beaten round the head by the usual suspects. Noddy Holder screaming that ‘it’s christmas!’ or Wizard doing that christmasy thing he did back in the seventies.

yet…wait a minute… what is this i see before me?

another christmas song…a new one? featuring lots of trendy young musicians? for charity?

here’s the video for The Magic Of Christmas By The Hunks. A project conceived by Jen Long and Rod Thomas of Bright Light Bright Light fame.

Helped out by a few musical friends and all in aid of a good cause…saving cats at christmas…cos they’re kinda like small dogs
