The Hot Press Newsdesk, 13 Dec 2011

The Saw Doctors will join X Factor contestants and the two-headed monster that is Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber in vying for the Christmas number one slot on Friday with the release of their cover of 1960's hit 'Downtown'. The song and video, which you can watch below, both feature original performer Petula Clark, now 79.

Guitarist Leo Moran says, “Petula wanted to be involved, and we got her into a London studio for two hours at the end of August on a stopover between Los Angeles and Geneva, where she now lives”.

The band will be making 1,000 limited edition CDs of the single available at Zhivago and HMV on Shop Street in their native Galway for 99 cent.
