Well, nothing says Christmas more than a mid-tempo gloomy psyche-rock masterpiece about dead soldiers, right?
I’ve been a fan of the Brian Jonestown Massacre for a few years now. I discovered them by accident, mainly because the owner of my local record store dedicates about 40% of his shelf space to the band. I think it’s safe to assume he’s a fan. In my opinion though, they seem to be getting better and better recently. I keep having to hold off from including them on Track of the Day over and over again.
Anyway, I thought this one seemed appropriate for Christmas Day via a very tenuous thought process that led, somehow, through The Farm’s ‘All Together Now’ and Jona Lewie’s ‘Stop the Cavalry’. Ok, well, I did say it was tenuous.
Happy Christmas everyone. Hope it’s a good one.
