Podcast: TSA AllStars – Ho Ho Ho (Santa’s Back)

So, er, do you remember when we asked some of the greatest minds of our generation to come up with some lyrics for a song? Well, they all turned us down so we had to resort to the depths of depravity in our forums for help.

The ensuing rap that they wrote wasn’t exactly the delicate little ditty we wanted but it was the one we deserved. Still, if a joke is worth doing, it’s worth following through to the cringe-worthy, uncomfortable end so we each recorded our parts (except Kris, who is a misery) and sent them off to Tuffcub so he could make it into something vaguely resembling music.

What came back is a little bit of a surprise. I should inform you all that each of the three of us went for different musical styles. Kev went for the Beastie Boys and ended up more like Goldie Lookin’ Chain. Lewis decided that the West coast was the best coast and hooked us up with some Snoop D-o-double-gizzle-styled vocals and I thought I’d sound like Plan B but ended up sounding like Jimmy Carr had too much to drink at his auntie’s wedding party.

We also all decided that we’d record in slightly different timings.

Tuffcub, though, has had albums at the top of the UK charts. He’s a bit of a production miracle worker and in less than a week, he turned around a group of dewey eyed hopefuls into a new rap supergroup.

Ladies and gentlemen, with great pleasure, we present to you the TSA AllStars with their debut single: Ho Ho Ho (Santa’s Back)

It’s gone up on iTunes too, in our regular podcast stream so if you’d like to subscribe there, you should get it next time you allow an update.
