A little snotty. A little greasy, a little jittery, and just a little loud today. That's the Holiday spirit. Spirits are good. Have one. Cuz today we're gonna rawk, Christmas style. Pump your fists and say yes, indie kids.
The Fall is one of the Mountain's favorite groops. We've never posted about Mark E. Smith's little combo before. Either an oversight, or a feeling of unworthiness. Regardless, Mr. Smith and company would like share some of their feelings about Christmas. We've got an old classic followed by a newer, future Holiday standard. Jittery.

Mick Collins, of the world famous, Grammy hogging, Rolling Stone cover stars The Dirtbombs apparently hates this song. Mick hates everything, though. And don't you dare call his band "garage". Merry Christmas, Mick, from your family at the Mountain. Greasy (with a bit of jangle).

And where would we be without the Sonics? We wouldn't be here, that's for darn tootin'. Maybe the finest practitioners of 60's punk, the Sonics are the temple, the very grail of snotty goodness.
