  • Listenable Xmas music

    Who's got some listenable Xmas music recommendations?

    Certainly not this horror, which Senor Trunk seems fond of:

    I nominate the perennial favourite, Vince Guaraldi:

    There's a great 60s Korean garage band album somewhere on my hard drive but I can't find it. Somebody?

      I like the old Disques du Crepuscule comps. They did 'Chantons Noel- Ghosts Of Christmas Past, and then 'Ghosts Of Christmas Past (Remake)' with differing tracklist. In them days a lot of my top fave artistes were represented- Aztec Camera, Paul Haig, Durutti Column and t'ing- and it also introduced me to the likes of Tuxedo Moon, Thick Pigeon, Soft Verdict and other Euro luminaries. I have a real soft spot for that label, and those times.

              I have zealously purged my Christmas section down to three LPs:

              Adventure in Carols—aka The Best Xmas LP ever
              Christmas in Mexico—aka The Best Xmas exploito LP ever
              Enchanted Carols—aka The Best Spooky Xmas LP ever
              Spirit Duplicator—collectable, charming, affordable... and also socially networked on FB / Twitter / Instagram.

                      And the Korean band I was trying to find was of course the HE5!

                          that HE-5 LP is bonkers - imagine the thought process behind deciding to do a medley of Jingle Bells and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida...!!


                          was pleased the other day to discover Michigan and Smiley giving "The Little Drummer Boy" the dancehall treatment



                          also this ska White Christmas from young Bob - can't decide if this is brilliant or terrible

                            It's never occurred to me before, but Little Drummer Boy was clearly written specifically to be performed by early 80s dancehall ribbit bing diddly bong deejays.
