Christmas mix, not for mother

December 21st, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am reposting this mix from seven years ago (before I made home-cooked covers) as a way of letting everybody know that all links to the Christmas mixes should be up-to-date now. I re-upped four mixes today.

This mix is most certainly not in keeping with the season to be jolly. As the title suggests, it’s not what you’ll bring to mother for Christmas lunch or dinner.

Some of the stuff is downright strange (TVTV$, Mr Lif), some of it pretty amusing (Ben Folds), some bitter (Rilo Kiley), some sad (Kevin Devine), some scroogey (Waits & Murphy), some classic (Run DMC, Waitresses) and a couple are simply great songs for any time of the year (especially John Prine’s Christmas In Prison).

As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R. PW in comments.

    We recently snagged some dbs on vinyl. I hadn’t really heard them, but I’ve greatly enjoyed them. I’d always read gushing reviews of them and it was a pleasant surprise that they deserved all the love.

    love it!

    My teeth hurt with some of the over-sweetened & saccharined tunes at this time of year, so this mix is a suitable antidote! Many thanks

    That one is forever kaputt. Most songs have appeared on subsequent mixes though.
