Viv Albertine joins up with experimental band Braindead Collective and Zoe Street Howe to record Viv's Christmas song, 'When it Was Nice'.

A melodic, poignant remembering of childhood innocence and trust, with a skewed and intense musical interpretation by BDC.

Viv met BDC when they were both appearing on The Late Late Breakfast Show on Resonance Radio 104.4 FM a month ago.

They hit it off immediately, played their first show together at a friend's birthday party a week later, never having played together before.

The improvisation worked and in that spirit they decided to record one of Viv's songs as a Christmas track available as a free download and here it is....
