Merry Christmas folks


Well, it’s Christmas Eve in Edinburgh already (and indeed, most of the world, I guess), so have a great time and I’ll be back here on Boxing Day or sometime soon after.

In the meantime, a final few Christmas numbers from me to you, and a very happy Christmas to all my readers from me, mrs. 17 Seconds and Tippi the cat.

Elastica -‘I Want To be A King Of Orient Aah (Peel Session).’ mp3

Elastica -‘All For Gloria (Peel session).’ mp3

Basement 5 -‘Last White Christmas.’ mp3

Click here for a free Blondie mp3 of a well known Christmas carol!

And if you are still looking for more Christmas exotica, try Aye tunes, Peenko, Love Shack baby, and of course Steve at Teenage Kicks.

Countdown to Christmas Post #7

OK, I have to admit I had barely heard of this record until last year, when one reader wrote in to ask if I had it. Investigating it, I cannot believe this band slipped through the net.

I didn’t have the track, I eventually tracked it down and I post it here for you:
