Like a sinister and deranged version of a Waitrose Christmas ad, Papernut Cambridge’s new video for their track St Nicholas Vicarage is a surreal plum-pudding-and-cheese-dream that tips its santa hat to victorian paper theatre, Blair Witch movies, 70s kids’ TV and an imagined cardboard cutout festive edition of The Sweeney.
The video is part of a new set of Papernut Cambridge goodies available in time for Christmas, including a limited 7” (two instrumentals: Green Chaud and Nutsplainin’) and two new Love The Things Your Lover Loves t-shirts that come with a free download of the LP. There’s also a special Rock N Roll Sunday wall calendar for 2017 that shows only Sundays each month, and that too has a free download – the complete There’s No Underground album and extras.
The 7″s, shirts and calendar are all available by mail order from Bandcamp.
