There’s actually a fair number of Fall-related Christmas songs, so let’s get cracking…(well, they’re almost seasonally-themed).
One of the first (sorta) was the track ‘No Xmas for John Quays’ (clever pun). There’s even less Xmas for Pharmacists than John Quays, as a Pharmacist very close to me is working both Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.
Anyway, this early song has appeared in several forms, firstly on their debut Live At The Witch Trials and also both in an early Peel session from 1979, and a few years later on one of the many Fall live albums Fall In A Hole.
The Fall -‘No Xmas for John Quays (Peel session).’ mp3
The Fall -‘No Xmas for John Quays (live).’ mp3
This was an album track in 1991…on the album Shiftwork
The Fall -‘Xmas With Simon.’ mp3
These two tracks come from a 1994 Peel session:
The Fall -‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing (Peel session).’ mp3
The Fall -‘Jingle Bell Rock (Peel session).’ mp3
This was an single in the earlier part of this decade…
The Fall ‘(We Wish You) A Protein Christmas.’ mp3
