Philophobia Music’s campaign for an original Christmas song to be number one during the festive period comes in the form of this single from D.D and the Flakes. The band consist of drummer Dan Stringer (The Michael Ainsley Band) and whichever of his musician friends are free to help him record which has in turn made a Wakefield super-group. While Here It Is, Christmas Again is not as polished as many traditional Christmas songs it tells a story of a lack of money and an increased alcohol intake which is familiar to many of us at this time of year. Although the song features sleigh bells and a string section it also has some brilliant gravely vocals that make for a fantastic, alternative Christmas hit.
