And Speaking of Yuletunes...

...someone mentioned this one yesterday, and of course we aim to please.

So please enjoy -- from the otherwise forgettable early 90s alt-rock Xmas album A Lump of Coal -- The Odds and a wonderfully Crazy Horse-ish take on "We Three Kings."




I'm a sucker for that guitar sound in particular, but this one's just very cool across the board.

Tres sweet!

(But then I've always been a bit of a sucker for Xmas music).

I have never enjoyed attempts to "rock up" Christmas carols, not the Beach Boys, not Bruce, not anything.

Until this. This is really good.

Wow this is a great Blog! I'm just beginning to see how much power pop info is out there and I'm a bit staggered, but at least now I have something to read!

I would have never believed doing "We Three Kings" straight up with a Crazy Horseish backing track would be anything but a joke.

This is great. Seriously.

Long-time follower, Steve, since before NO MORE, NO LESS. The Odds are and were one absolutely fine group that had it all: great songwriting, smart arrangements, talented musicians, and quite down to earth.
