Track Of The Day: Ulysses
Ulysses have done a festive single. And that’s the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day here.
Following hard on the trail of Eye On You, which made Classic Rock’s list of the Top 100 songs of 2011, the Bath crew – Luke Smyth (vocals/guitar), Tom Sartoryal (guitar/percussion/vocals), Julyan Wells-Cathedral (bass/vocals) and Shane Maxymus (drums/vocals) – have decided to come up with their Xmas song. Smyth explains the reasoning:
“Upon realising last week there were to be no novelty Christmas hits this year a la Top Of The Pops – Slade, Wizzard, Macca, Shakey, Bowie & Bing – Ulysses stopped crying and decided as an experiment, to give ourselves 12 working hours to write, record and make a video for our very own festive smash
“The resulting (I Wish You A) Merry Christmas is probably the most fun we’ve ever had legally. This a Christmas song for the rockers – those couples who still go to see what’s left of Thin Lizzy. I’d like to think of them biker-dancing around the Christmas tree to it! And in the true spirit of Christmas, we have decided to give this away free as a present to not only our fans but also to the whole world! So let’s have a rocking one all ye faithful.”
Well, it’ll certainly provide some fun while we wait for second album Kill You Again in the spring.
