Another LEGEND returns in time for Christmas


Well, it’s getting to that time again: I am starting to get to work on my end of year lists for the annual Secenteen Seconds Festive Fifty and the Top 75 albums list, which should appear here soon. Any suggestiosn for anything you think I should make sure I hear before the end of the year gratefully received.

I will also be doing my annual posting of Christmas related songs. Having posted Poly Styrene’s awesome ‘Black Christmas’ last week, this track is from the Slits’ Viv Albertine, who I had the pleasure of interviewing earlier this year.

Following on from last April’s Flesh EP, Viv Albertine will be releasing this as a download-only Christmas track, entitled ‘Home Sweet Home (…at Christmas).’

…and sorry it’s been so quiet around here the last few days. Feeling a bit grotty…


An mp3 cleared to post arrived in another email:

Viv Albertine -‘Home Sweet Home (…At Christmas).’ mp3

Not only that but Viv will be releasing her own solo album next year. AND Early 2011 will see Viv releasing the last ever original Slits song never previously released; ‘Shoulda Coulda Woulda’. Recorded in Compton LA in 1980, remixed by Dennis Bovell, who produced Cut and mixed ‘Home Sweet Home.’
