Buffet is back on the radio on February 22nd. In the meantime, we’re on Facebook and Twitter. We’re probably on MySpace, too, but abandoned that years ago.
If you tuned in – big thanks! If not, and you feel you can endure yet more Christmas music (but not the supermarket variety) you can listen here. It was rather like a real Christmas family gathering, as my sister, Emma from The Bet Lynch Mob, joined me in the studio and I told her off a lot. And where else would you hear Wonder Women save Santa with a Tiara? Who needs TV soaps!
This here is what we played!
1. Geoff Love & His Orchestra – Sleigh Ride
2. Shonen Knife – Space Christmas
3. Gruff Rhys – Post Apocalypse Christmas
4. Yo La Tengo – It’s Christmas Time

13. The Kinks – Father Christmas
If you have nothing better to do on New Year’s Eve we’ve been handed the reigns by BCB to see in 2014 – a frightening prospect! Join us for chaos, f-bombs and lots of good music! 11pm-1am 31st December. We’ll be Tweeting as we go from @buffetdisco
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.
