I heartily supported the successful campaign to get Rage Against The Machine’s Killing In The Name to the coveted UK Christmas No. 1 last year and it’s business as usual this year.
For me, it’s less about being spiteful of Simon Cowell et al, and more about reintroducing a bit of unpredictability to the Christmas chart. 4’33” of “silence” is a delicious idea; mischievous, a bit pretentious and a lot counter-intuitive.
The CATM people have selected five unusual and small charities that certainly won’t mind whatever money and awareness comes their way, so go on, make it a silent night this Christmas!
