A little Soldier's Joy for Christmas. Put together by Mike 'Jonah' Jones, who many of you will recognise from our merchandising stall from footage shot at gigs around the country during 2016.
Besides being known as Soldier's Joy (referring to a combination of whiskey, beer and morphine used by troops in the Amerian Civil War, Robbie Burns also put words to the tune as part of his work 'The Jolly Beggars'
We could rename it 'The Drummer's Demise' as Andy is left pretty breathless as our version gets faster and faster - which is why we usually have to follow it with a ballad.

The first video from our forthcoming album 'The Ghost in Our House and other stories...'
