Glasgow School of Art’s Retro Christmas Carol

4,601 views 0 comments

The Glasgow School of Art’s Christmas e-card for this year is a rather fantastic love letter to the hardware of Christmases past. James Houston, who graduated from GSA with a first in 2008, put together a choir comprised of a Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum +1, Mega Drive and a collection of Macs, which performs a fantastic rendition of Carol of the Bells. The new lyrics by Robert Florence and Philip Larkin have the machines pleading to be used and wishing they were smartphones – but we get the feeling that our audience might not need much persuasion to power up a Speccy!
