It's time for a Proper Christmas number 1!

With the news full of woe, war and divisions and following 5 long years of tenuous and increasingly unlistenable sausage roll-themed Christmas number ones, puppet band The Krackpots step up to try and give the UK what it needs, a proper Christmas Number 1.

Their song Proper Christmas does what it says on the tin, capturing the perfectly imperfect family Christmases of the late 70s and early 80s in an instant sing-a-long radio-friendly Christmas classic like the festive hits of yesteryear, channelling The Krackpots' childhood favourites Chas and Dave, vintage Madness and Slade.

The identity of the band behind The Krackpots, a mystery group with several top 10 hits and millions of streams, is a closely guarded secret, and an intriguing mystery, a bit like Banksy.

Proper Christmas is available to Download and Stream on all platforms from 8th December 2023. It is released on Official Kulture records. For details see
