A Headcoat Christmas

That's Black La Belle, for cats in the know.

So. Have I been reduced to posting silly little trifles here at the Mountain for the Holidays? Have we completely lost our rockers, and any credibility we never had in the first place with this month-long foray into Holiday nonsense? You bet your sweet ass. It's an absurd season, but we like shiny lights and aluminum things.

Tell you what. I'll be very serious and Greil Marcus-like when I post the Mountain's all-important top 10-15 albums list between Christmas and New Year's. Yep, that's either a preview or a warning.

For now, though, I don't think the following little ditty is going to improve matters much at all.

Thee Headcoatees are Bongo Debbie, Kyra LaRubia, Ludella Black, and, your girlfriend and mine, Holly Golightly. With Thee Billy Childish on songwriting, production, and various instruments.

They're the best girl beat/punk band you've ever heard. But you knew that.

This one is a Sonics cover of sorts, with Mr. Childish playing Santa Claus at the beginning. You'd be forgiven if you thought of "Farmer John" while listening. I think this version is quite keen, and it goes on every damn Xmas mix I make. So, make of that what you will.
