It’s that time of year again, weeks of preparation blown in a matter of days as an orgy of food, fun, frolics and festivities engulfs us.
And why not? It’s been a hard, long year and you have to let off steam every now and again….
….so the presents have been opened, the house is ready for guests, we’ve invited too many people for Christmas Dinner so we’re a chair short, food and nibbles are all over the place (but can’t be touched until the first person arrives) and we have a stack of AA batteries just in case.
The perfect time for a really quick festive post.
Another Christmas At Home / Merry Xmas Everybody / Teenage Christmas (2009) – Vinyl
I bought this when it came out simply because I wanted to hear their take on Slade’s yuletide staple (aka Noddy Holder and Jim Lea’s pension provider) “Merry Xmas Everybody”. I like it in a laid back kind of way but after a while the monotony of the stomping drums tends to get to me………
The gem here is the A side “Another Christmas at Home” which is actually more of a paean to the nightmare that is enforced Christmas with family but delivered in such a way that you don’t realise this until you actually pick up on the lyrics.
Hey – Merry Christmas Everybody!
