We Wish You a Ripper Christmas by Bucko and Champs
Bucko and Champs are known to many for their Australian take on Christmas songs. ‘We Wish You a Ripper Christmas’ is an extra track on the second release of their album Aussie Christmas (the album features karaoke versions of selected tracks for a fully immersive experience).
Recorded in Melbourne, the production features many top session musicians including Sam See on guitar. The sing-a-long vocals and comic harmonies make ‘We Wish You a Ripper Christmas’ memorable. Lyrics which resonate with many Australian families would be ‘Send cards through the post, have a big Christmas roast, then hitch up the caravan and shoot down the coast’.
When not recording Christmas albums, Irish-born Australian Colin Buchanan is a prolific country music songwriter and is the winner of nine Golden Guitar Awards from the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Greg 'Champs' Champion is a multi-talented and versatile performer best known for his sporting songs about AFL and cricket. He is an in-demand radio personality, comedian and corporate entertainer.
