Good Gravy Santa
Just a few more days until December 25th, the birth of Shane MacGowan. Gonna go a bit crazy over the next few days, as is our tendency, so buckle up yr Santa suits and get the sleigh gassed up.
Before the true insanity, let's take a Holiday stroll down Americana (whatever that is) lane.
We've got The Band (who have some Canadian members) going old-timey on a special night. Chip Taylor examines sibling rivalry for the Yuletide. The seminal Paul Kelly (who is Australian) watches an Xmas celebration from afar, and shares the gift of gravy. And the Trainwreck Riders take their sleigh on a long, dusty path!
Ho Ho Ho!
The Band: Christmas Must Be Tonight (mp3)
Chip Taylor: Bastard Brothers (mp3)

Drop a few bucks in the red bucket if you have a chance.
