This Single Will Ruin Your Christmas

By - (1999-11-04, Heat Magazine)

It's your worst musical nightmare made real. The people behind the KLF and Fat Les have made a single together.

Brace yourself for what could be the last number one of the millennium. With no Spice Girls Christmas single to promote, Virgin Records are heavily backing 'Solid Gold Chart Busters', put together by the KLF's Jimmy Cauty and Fat Les songwriter Guy Pratt. The single's called '121' and is built around a riff sampled from a mobile phone.

Club singer Denise Palmer takes lead vocals and the single's been mixed by Spice Girls and Oasis producer Mike 'Spike' Stent.

Virgin signed the project three weeks ago. The song hadn't even finished playing before the deal was stuck. "It's an annoying catchy pop song. It's crass in the way that Doctorin' The Tardis was," says a friend of Cauty's. "Everyone will buy it and hate it within three weeks".

The single is released in the first week of December and so far doesn't have much competition. Last week the odds dropped from 33-1 to 11-1 at William Hill. Other artists releasing Christmas singles include Steps, SClub7, Boyzone, Westlife and George Michael. The multi-artist 'It's Only Rock 'N' Roll' has yet to be given a release
