One Big Xmas Tree
It's finally snowing here in Chicago! So let's break out the egg nog, put on our ironic Xmas sweaters, and get to work!
So...what do we have for y'all today? Some killer little packages, that's what!
Garage punk Xmas takes center stage with the staggeringly great tale of bad behavior, "Santa Aint Coming For Christmas" from Rocket 455! A jumpin' and swingin' "Santa Claus Blues" from Eva Taylor ("No money, no honey, to buy a present for me")! Contemporary music's best lyricist brings the Yuletide grouch in Magnetic Field's "Everything is One Big Christmas Tree"! And L.E. White and Lola Jean Dillon bring us a honky tonk tale both hilarious and heartbreaking in the essential "The Big One"!
Santa's a Cynical Sinner!
