Songs For Christmas XXI

It is mental out there, way too many people, still too much to do, and I haven't even written a single Christmas card. Here are five more in the ongoing series...

First up, the Dandy Warhols' cover of 'Little Drummer Boy.' I heard this on Peel in Christmas 1994, and it was actually the first time I had ever heard (of) them.

Dandy Warhols -'Little Drummer Boy.' mp3

...So what else could possibly follow it but...this?

Beck -'The Little Drum Machine Boy.' mp3

I came across this Liz Phair track across the 'net, though I don't know much about it:

Liz Phair -'Winter Wonderland.' mp3

This track came out last year:

Holly Golightly -'Christmas Tree On Fire.' mp3

...and finally, this track is from this year's album of the same name (also released as a 7" if you act quickly) (NB: this track does feature swear words, just in case you are in the presence of those unable to 'cope' with that sort of thing).

Wild Billy Childish and the Musicians Of The British Empire -'Christmas 1979.' mp3

Three more Christmas posts to come...XX

Oh, and if you live in the UK, and haven't yet bought a copy of the Malcolm Middleton single, please DO so!
