A Very Childish Christmas
You know, we heard a rumor that Big Rock Candy Mountain T-Shirts make great stocking stuffers. Just sayin'.
What was that? You want some more of that sweet-ass Xmas music we've been bandying about 'round these parts? I think we can oblige.
It's no secret we're a bit obsessive about one Mr. Billy Childish and his various bands (Thee Headcoats, Buff Medways, Pop Rivets, The Milkshakes, etc., etc., and many more etc.'s.) The man's a punk/trash/blues genius. But we didn't need to tell you that. You knew that already. And Christmas wouldn't be complete without a little Hall Deckin' by Billy. Bassist Nurse Julie even steps to the mic for a track. Don't we post something by him just about every year? Maybe there's a reason for that...
And keeping with the Childish (Christmas) family tree, we'd be remiss if we didn't include Miss Holly Golightly, she of Thee Headcoatees and various and sundry brilliant side projects. We have a big crush on Holly Golightly.
And for our Bonus Re-Posts, we're gonna keep it an all-Childish/Golightly day with some classic tracks from previous years' posts involving the two. Good god, that's yummy.
