Yup, the Beta Band were fantastic, but I think the three EPs was the best thing they produced.

Who do Frightened Rabbit remind me of? answers on a postcard.
Thank you for these, Ed: thanks to you, I've got tons of new Christmas songs to hear, just when I was convinced it was a dying genre. God bless you.
P.S. Just make the cheque out to cash. ;-))

'I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas'. has changed my perception of music forever...

I forgot to say, do you know the Paul Vickers track is actually a cover of a 1953 song by Gayla Peevey, and was a very early example of a charity single? It was recorded by a little girl who felt moved to try and save her local zoo by making a record...it didn't have the wicked humour of this, though. If I feel pissed off enough because of work, i just might post it, as well!!

Haven't heard the earlier version, but did know it was a cover.
