It seems impossible but here it is. December 1, which of course means we open the first door of the season on the Essentially Pop Advent Calendar.

John Dredge And The Plinths seem to like making their pancakes from batter, if the video for their latest single, ‘Pancake Day’ (appropriately set for release this coming Tuesday), is anything to go by. With their customary humour and 60s/Northern Style vocals, John is seen wielding a frying pan in an otherwise empty room, making semaphore like movements, alternating wih various facial expressions.
