Simultaneously mournful and upbeat, the Mountain Firework Company are a jolly bunch, the songs are folky numbers, foot tapping and easy on the ear. Live, the MFC are enthusiastic, slick, professional and fun. You can tell when you watch them that they love what they do, and they should, because they’re really good at it.
Their Christmas single is available to download for free if you sign up to their mailing list. That’s gratis, nada, and unlike George Michaels’, it is actually pretty good.
