The former Coral man features on their Christmas charity track.
An Irish duo determined to keep themselves busy, there really is no slowing The Lost Brothers down these days. After earning plenty of plaudits in 2011 for So Long John Fante, a follow-up in the form of The Passing Of The Night recently arrived and has been receiving similar praise.
Now they tackle a Christmas song. The pair recorded 'St Christopher' in Liverpool with guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones, formerly of Merseyside indie act The Coral.
The track also features Drew McConnell, bassist with Babyshambles.
Best of all, it's for a very good cause. The release is in aid of Dublin homeless charity, the Peter McVerry Trust.
