Mixes and sets

A mix for people who don't enjoy Yule/Christmas/Solstice/etc.

THIS IS *NOT* SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, and NOT SAFE FOR WORK. (Due to Beans on Toast, Tales from the Crypt, Tiny Tim, Zoogz Rift and Allen Ginsberg).

 

Cynical at Christmas by Dj Kaboodle on Mixcloud

 

However, it's not all cynical, and it's not 'anti-Christmas' - just a different take for people who are sick of schmaltzy, repetitive, moronic Christmas songs.

More Christmas and Winter mixes will be posted soon - they will also be minus cheap sentiment and mindless resurrection of Victorian/Edwardian carols.

I didn't use Slow Moving Millie's 'controversial' cover of the The Smith's 'Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want' because I like Clayhill's version better. Also, nobody seemed to cause a fuss about Clayhill when they did it 4 years ago. (It is from the 'This is England' soundtrack - they do a lot of fantastic tracks for Shane Meadows films.)

And Half Man Half Biscuit's 'It's Cliched to be Cynical at Christmas' *IS* the best Christmas song ever.
