Crossfire Xmas Cracker!

This year’s Crossfire Xmas Jam in London was quite simply off the hook. If you missed it, you missed the biggest and best event London has seen since Cher floated down the Thames a top a Warship gunner. Boom! Everywhere was going off, and the buzz lasted well into the wee hours of the morning thanks to a booze fuelled afterparty at Mau Mau.

Obviously we’re all a bit shattered and drained from such a heavy weekend of madness, so please let us take a couple of days to recoup. In the meantime, here and here is just a snippet of footy – thanks to Jono and SlimJim for uploading it so quickly.
