Paul Hawkins & The Bleak Midwinters are Paul Hawkins of Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences, his bandmate Ian Button and Mary Boeker, who usually sings with the Empty Gestures & the Count of Chateau Noir.
Tonight I Will Be Santa involves a man breaking into a woman’s house on Christmas Eve and claiming to be Santa:
“How did you get in here?
I climb chimneys don’t you know
But because you didn’t have one
I used a brick on the window”
Understandably she’s not entirely convinced by this and the song goes from there. Not your usual festive fare perhaps, but always good to get a different perspective on the world and with Mr Hawkins you are pretty much guaranteed that.
