Mistletoe Mess Around
Good gravy, what if we put all this energy into posting all year 'round? Regardless, it's Xmas! Good times are coming.
Today's yule logs take a decided shift into bar band territory, with some nifty tunes that hang neon bar-lights around their Santa Claus suits. Let's take a listen....
Danny Barnes used to be (or still is) in the seminal Bad Livers. Here, his banjo expertise (of which he is an acknowledge master) is on display in a low-down, beats-driven Christmas lament.
Star and Micey, who we got to see not too long ago, in a great show, go traveling and drinking on a Christmas Eve in one of our great cities.
Marah, who recorded one of our favorite records of all time, "Let's Cut the Crap and Hook Up Later On Tonight", chime in with an Xmas ode to the greatest city in the world.
And Scott Miller, formerly of the V-Roys, lends his Holiday voice in a rather suggestive number, where Virginia finds out there's a Santa Claus, and she's not disappointed.
Santa's a Banjo fiend.
Danny Barnes: All Alone For Christmas (mp3)
Star and Micey: A Memphis Christmas (mp3)
Marah: New York is a Christmas Kind of Town (mp3)
Scott Miller: Yes, Virginia (mp3)
Thanks for stopping by.
