Have you cracked open the Sufjan Stevens box set yet? Or perhaps you’re more of a die hard Slade fan? Well, which ever way you swing, the supermarkets and bus stations have been churning out Christmas music for weeks now. This means the chart battle for Christmas No.1 has begun (yes, the charts still exist, even though TOTP ended years ago) and the kitsch-fest has kicked off.
This year I’m backing 50 Sniffs – I even paid to download Credit Card Christmas (I’m usually very “bah-humbug!” when it comes to iTunes), as all profits are being used to help clean up the mess left by serious floods in my hometown of Boston last week. If you’ve not discovered 50 Sniffs yet, they serve up a fun, affectionate, occasionally crass Bostonian rap parody. I’ve had “Bought a turkey on finance, then I took it round my Nan’s” as an ear-worm for a week now, and it’s cheesy in all the right places. I don’t think anyone expects it to go top ten, but top 40 would be nice!
And if you want to check out some other weird and wonderful Christmas music, have a nosey at my blog – Bloody Nora’s Big Gob.
The Buffet radio show will be bringing you an eclectic Twisted Christmas 2013 review combo on Sunday 29th December at 7pm. But in the meantime, we’ve uploaded one of our old Christmas shows from 2010, which you can listen to here.
Hope your Christmas rocks!
