Itttttttttttttttt'ssssssss Chris-mixxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx!!!!!!!!!!!

As is traditional I've scoured the internet for a suitably funky Christmas mix to replace that 'Now That's What I Call A Bieber Christmas' CD that's somehow found its way into your home. I reckon Bieber plants 'em there. Anyway, this year I've plumped (literally...I've put on half a stone just thinking about Christmas) for Funky Santa's XXX MaaS Vol 14. I had's got the frickin' Weather Girls on and I'll all about The Weather Girls.

Whatever you're up to have a cool yule and I'll catch you in 2019...unless I've succumbed to gin poisoning...which is a distinct possibility. Ho ho ho!

Santa Baby - Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

Picked up a neat haul of US pop punk CDs from a chazza at the weekend, 49p a piece...good grief. One or two fresh names to me (Leftover Crack anyone?) but here's a brand new Christmas offering from one of the groups I did know, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, with a punked up dash through that ol' favourite Santa Baby.

The Orielles - Bobbi's Second World

Straightoutta Halifax The Orielles have released some cracking singles so far but I reckon this is the best yet. Apparently the song's about a cat that wants into a lady...okey don't get that from Ed Sheeran lyrics do you eh?

Pete Shelley RIP

If you're in any doubt about which punk band made the best collection of tunes just cop a listen to Singles Going Steady, released a mere two years into Buzzcock's career. I was lucky enough to see the band a few years back and they were every bit as good 30 odd years on. RIP Pete.

Sophie Hunger - I Opened A Bar

This is weird, but I like weird...and it features the words 'opened' and 'bar' which can only ever be a good thing.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets - My Friend's A Liquid

Brand spanking new Aussie psych pop (they do seem to like their psych pop down under...see also Tame Impala and Pond) from the rather brilliantly named Psychedelic Porn Crumpets.
