Track Of The Day – The Primitives – ‘You Trashed My Christmas’


Today we have another Christmas song, this time it’s the Primitives with ‘You Trashed My Christmas’, a genuine 24 carrot indie pop nugget that takes the bitter sweet Christmas break-up song and injects it with some vim and vigour.  There’s regret yes, but also a sense of angry defiance, a case of the truth opening your eyes and setting you free, after all a broken heart is just for Christmas not for life !  It’s a tune that’s set to be added to our list of perennial ‘must play Yuletide classics’ because it contains everything we require from a Christmas tune.  As a bonus there’s also a seasonal video featuring Tracy Tracy in a rather fetching Christmas outfit, which happily also addresses a couple of long-standing Christmas wishes Wink and has us believing in Santa all over again!

The track is from the” A Christmas Gift For You From Elephant Records” featuring  some fabulous festive tunes from the likes of  The School, BMX Bandits, The Yearning and loads more.  It’s also available as a limited edition in snow-white vinyl, which you can order HERE
