By now, the sound of Christmas music is enough to make me want to drill extra holes into my head. And what better sounds to accompany my experiments in holiday trepanation than with Woody Phillips' Christmas songs played on power tools (mp3s): Joy To The Word | Jingle Bells | I Saw Three Ships
And after an all-night session of self-surgery, are you left feeling a little... gassy? That's no reason to ignore the birthday of Jesus! Put on that party hat and download some Christmas music to belch by (mp3s): Jingle Belch | We Wish You A Merry Christmas
Fortunately for all of us, 700 miles of power tools and surgical instruments now separate me from WFMU's stash of Christmas records. Rounding out what I pray is my final Christmas post, here's Sonic Youth's Santa Doesn't Cop Out On Dope, and Klaus Nomi's Silent Night.
