fAUst and Natalie Sharp, otherwise known as Lone Taxidermist', have joined forces to cover 'Silent Night' for BBC Radio 3's Late Junction

Tonight's edition of Late Junction on BBC Radio 3 will feature a first airing of an unusual cover from fAUst and Natalie Sharp, otherwise known as Lone Taxidermist.

The two joined forces, for the first time and having never met previously, earlier this month at the BBC's Maida Vale studios to record a collaborative session, and as part of that they put together a cover of 'Silent Night'. You can hear the full thing on BBC Radio 3 from 11pm tonight (December 14), but before that you can get a sneak peek of the cover via a teaser video above.

For the collaboration session Natalie Sharp brought with her to the studio cling film, scanners, a flautist and a handful of contact mics. Jean-Hervé Peron from faUSt also, brought a variety of unusual tools with him including his trademark, fully operational cement mixer, but this time it was filled with festive baubles.
