An Anne Murray and Elvis Presley Christmas Wish For Michael Willmore
While the Christmas music our malls feed us can get fucking nauseating, if somewhat less so when there is snow on the ground instead of the usual oily puddles, I do enjoy some Christmas music in December.
Began my listening of that shit last night by tuning into the Rockinitis Christmas special. The show's host, Michael Willmore, has been entertaining me for a little longer than The Match's Fred Woodworth - over 30 years.
(Woodworth has yet to publish a Christmas edition of his must read Anarchist journal - something he really ought to rectify. Be worth it for the Who The Police Beat At Christmas article alone.)
Willmore had many solid recommendations - The Marcels, Elvis and the Beach Boys for example. Did not mention Anne Murray for some fucking reason - Elvis will shoot the motherfucker and defile his corpse on the other side for that oversight.
Tonight I have on Alberta record label Stony Plain's Christmas Blues album. Been waiting since April, when I found the cd in a Manitoba thrift store, to hear it. Worth seeking out if you, like me, like rockin' around the motherfuckin' Christmas Tree.
