A Rev. Frost Christmas
One week to go until Shane Macgowan's birthday.
Today, a toast to missing friends.
I mentioned on Saturday's post how we missed the Right and Good Rev. Frost and his site Spread The Good Word. , which is on hiatus for awhile. Frost posted some of the best Holiday tunes and mixes out there. And then I thought to myself, we don't have to have a completely Rev. Frost-free Xmas. As many of the regular visitors here know, Frost is not merely a music blogger, but a killer musician. And a year or so again, the revered Reverend shared a couple of his own Holiday recordings with us. And I'm gonna post them here. I don't think he'd mind.
Sounding like a rumble between Hank Williams, Link Wray, The Cramps, and, yes, Tom Waits, Frost weaves a voodoo stew of junkyard trash and Holiday glee. Perfect for gift-wrapping and cookie-baking.
And don't forget to stop by Barstool Mountain for more Holiday cheer.
Rock the tinsel!

Are you broke yet? It's not the Holidays until you've spent all your money on bad sweaters and singing fish.
