lyrics

I'm gonna grow me an advent beard
To cover my face
To catch my tears
'Cos Christmas day is never far away
And I know you will be leaving me

I'm gonna buy me an advent beard
To wash away the hopes and fears
And at New Year's time I switch back to the wine
'Cos I know you will be leaving me

I'm gonna grow it just to keep me warm until it gets to summer
'Cos I know you won't be there for me my lover
At the bottom it's short and prickly
And furry on top like the Christmas tree

I'm gonna get me an advent whore
Pretend that's all you were ever good for
At the time of good deeds
Babe I've still got needs
And I know you will be leaving me


I'm gonna grow it just to keep me warm until it gets to summer
'Cos I know you won't be there for me my lover
At the bottom it's short and prickly
And fairy on top like the Christmas tree

And I'm gonna cry me an advent tear
For everyday since you disappeared
And hope and pray every single day
That one day you'll return to me

I'm gonna grow me an advent beard
I'm gonna buy me an advent beer
I'm gonna get me an advent whore
Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho!

Grow
Gro-o-o-o-ow
Gro-o-o-o-ow
Gro-o-o-o-ow a beard

Grow
Gro-o-o-o-ow
Gro-o-o-o-ow
Gro-o-o-o-ow a beard

O come all ye faithful
Your facial hair is graceful

about

Matt Edible & The Obtuse Angels Hull, UK

In 2016 Matt Edible (The Holy Orders/Edible 5ft Smiths) decided to make a solo album.
He enlisted the help of Joe Bennett (The Dreaming Spires/Goldrush) and took a trip to the Truck Studio in Oxfordshire to document a selection of so far unrecorded songs.
What was initially a fairly stripped down recording soon gave way to Matt and Joe's love of embellishment and The Obtuse Angels were born.
