about

In the spring of 2013 year, we were asked if we would like to do a Christmas single with a little pop-up label by a nice music-loving man called Robert from the Netherlands. The idea was a singles club of similarly, er, selectively-known bands, with 500 vinyl 7"s being produced for each band, one side a cover, one side an original.

There was general enthusiasm about the Miserable camp, and everyone liked the idea of getting our hands on some sleigh bells.

Fast forward to August of the hottest Summer for years, and we're already behind schedule with half the band on the other side of the world playing on tour with new projects. So far so Miserable.

Well, we managed to squeeze in one songwriting and arrangement session in the heat of Summer, and wrote a happy new tune about trudging through the snow. Everyone that could contributed their parts and the whole thing slowly took shape.

Now it's ready and it's getting cold outside, about time to let the spirit out of the bottle. Here's hoping you enjoy the happiest of Miserable Christmases....You deserve Everything You Wanted.

Track Name: Everything You Wanted
Battled through the streets
(Through the showers)
Through the snow, the sleet
I searched for hours
To find you something good, to make it right

Couldn't quite decide
(Stopped to think)
To warm me up inside
I had a drink -
Y'know, to keep me light

Now I think you're gonna like it
And I'm a little bit excited
Now I feel the festive spirit start to flow

I got everything you wanted
Burnt the hell out of my wallet
But at last I think I've got it
And I'll wrap it in the morning

Saved up all my money
(Well, nearly all)
To get you something funny
But not too small
Just something guaranteed to make it right

Stopped of with some friends
(Celebrate)
The bar that never ends
It kept us late
I'd better say goodnight

'Cos I think you're gonna like it
I'm a little bit excited
Now I feel the festive spirit start to flow

I got everything you wanted
Burnt the hell out of my wallet
But at last I think I've got it
And I'll wrap it in the morning

I got everything you wanted
Got it right here in my pocket
Just be sure that you don't drop it
When we unwrap it in the morning
We'll be good
