black midi release two Christmas covers to support Windmill Brixton venue

18 December 2020, 15:09 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

black midi have covered two covers of festive classics "Jingle Bell Rock" and "What Christmas Means to Me" to support Brixton's Windmill music venue.

Windmill Brixton is currently on Music Venue Trust's red zone along with 29 other grassroots music venues across the UK, which means the venue is at risk of imminent closure without financial aid.

Today Windmill Brixton uploaded two festive covers by black midi for free, but are encouraging donations which will go to the venue.

black midi's covers of "Jingle Bell Rock" and Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas Means To Me" were recorded at their rehearsal room, with the bells and whistles added from their home later.

In a note on the Windmill Brixton Bandcamp page, black midi write, "We recorded a couple of covers of our favourite Christmas tunes at our rehearsal room and then added some bells an whistles at home Usually we would do some fun one off covers shows at the Windmill around this time of year so hopefully this goes some way to fill the gap."

black midi have been hugely supportive of Windmill Brixton over the past month, having contributed items to their Action! Auction!, as well as taking part in a collaborative performance with Black Country, New Road which saw them cover tracks by Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, CeeLo Green, Led Zeppelin and more.

black midi's Christmas covers of "Jingle Bell Rock" and "What Christmas Means To Me" are available to buy from Bandcamp now.
