The infamous rock band Led Zeppelin are to team up with the popular TV characters, The Smurfs, to record a one-off Christmas album. The album is to be recorded in a helium filled studio to maintain the classic Smurf high pitched voice effect.
Father Abraham, Smurfmeister extraordinaire, has teamed up with Robert Plant on lead vocals. Jimmy Page will be performing a harmony guitar part with Farmer Smurf. Papa Smurf will be replacing the deceased John Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones will be playing keyboard and Harmony Smurf on Bass.
Some of the tracks from the album include:
- Dazed And Compressed
- Blue Dog
- Whole Lotta Helium
- Going To Smurf-a-fornia
- Bad Times, Bad Times
Special precautions have been put in place to prevent evil wizard Gargamel from boycotting the recording by using his black magic to unplug the amplifiers.
Jimmy Page comments on the whole affair: "I think this recording is going to be really good for our reputation and it will bring Led Zeppelin back into the charts with a high octave kick"
