Today’s Christmas offering was a fine and free track released by Poly Styrene, once of X-Ray Spex, a couple of years ago. An almost anti-seasonal track, if such a thing is possible. I wasn’t that into her final album Generation Indigo, sadly, but she was a legend and is sadly missed.
And if you think this track is bleak, bear in mind that, after all, some Christmas music is patently dark and antagonistic. That goes for the Hives and Cyndi Lauper’s ‘A Christmas Duel’. You also get the very sad carol ‘The Coventry Carol’ which remembers all the children slaughtered by King Herod. And if it’s all about good cheer, why do people love ghost stories around this time of year so much. Eh? Eh??
