Look Who Is Coming To Town (Please Let It Snow) / Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer
Look Who Is Coming To Town (Please Let It Snow) / Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer by The Manhattan Love Suicides from Leeds is one of the four singles released as part of the fourth edition of the Snowflakes Christmas Singles Club. Look Who Is Coming To Town (Please Let It Snow), an original, sounds like the script of a 1960s horror movie, but of the kind that you only find in that dusty cult video store somewhere in a dark alley of a medium sized city. The song is an angry sounding snarling creature which picks up where the recent single Bikini Party / Birthday Kill left off, and brings both The Primitives and Sonic Youth to mind. Listen to the song, and find out who is coming to town and why it is so important that it will snow. For the B-side, the band turn Elmo and Patsy's classic 1979 Christmas novelty Grandma Got Runover By A Reindeer in an echo-drenched murder ballad, with instead of the loud uptempo guitars of the A-side of the single, subtle melodic guitar playing, which gives the song more of a pop sensibility, but pop with a distinct raw edge. Limited to 300 Copies on Snow Flake White Vinyl.
