Having accepted the Christmas Challenge from Nemone on 6Music's, George appeared on the show last week to introduce the results. I love that Nemone calls him Mr Smerins all the way through, and I also love that the band are the official title of the episode in BBC /programmes (as a guy who updates these all the time, that's a strange little personal thrill).
And don't forget to get your free copy of Walking In The Air from their website, and watch the making-of video.

We had our xmas lunch today - a nice long lunch in a nearby pub, hats, xmas crackers, the usual thing. Greg James got wind of this and decided to call me three times during the show to get regular updates. The first time he called, it was out of the blue and I didn't really know what to say ("interactive telephone"??), but I was expecting if the second and third times. Thankfully I hadn't had too much wine, and didn't make a complete moron of myself. Oh what a larf.

Smerins have been played on 6Music again, this time with an added challenge from the show to record a Christmas Song in a Smerins stylee (or "a Christmas track, version of your deciding" as Nemone eloquently put it. I'm hearing rumours that East 17 Say Another Day, or Aled Jones' Walking In The Air might be coming out of a studio near Bristol some day soon.
