I really hate normal Christmas songs, we seem programmed to like them and singalong, it’s like Schrodinger’s Cat! So Mike B has provided this suitably dark, electronic collection from Red Flag released as a CD single in 2000 ( Remember CD’s ? I’ve literally got a thousand of these stored away somewhere!)
Goth overtones but it does have a hook! “XMAS TREE GRAVEYARD” is my favourite, like a dark Erasure, very tongue-in-cheek about getting rid of your old Christmas tree! 🙂
“Your Presence” is even weirder, a moody semi-instrumental with lots of jarring metallic sounds and chimes.
A couple remixes that just basically extend the originals finish off this rare release.
