The indie pop wonders The Crookes have launched their own special ‘advent’ style website, with special daily treats ranging from festive covers to free downloads and guest appearances from friends of the band.
The site went ‘live’ on Sunday December 13th, so there will be a few doors already waiting to be opened. Special guests on the site include Reverend and the Makers and Richard Hawley, with John McClure and Steve Lamacq on board hosting the daily treats.
In addition, the band will be offering a free download of Chorus Of Fools for the duration of the project. A work of winsome, jangly magic, it’s one of the band’s best-loved numbers and a fine illustration of why The Crookes Myspace page regularly clocks up hundreds of visits every day.

What they are saying about The Crookes:
“One of the bands I’m most excited about this year. The Crookes have ambition and flare and a singer with a beautiful voice; one of those special, poetic voices which dips and soars above their jangling guitars.” Steve Lamacq
“I heard a brilliant band last night called The Crookes, who are superb…. really good.” Richard Hawley
