Okay. This is how it works. This is why I've been a bit quiet the last week or so. Nobody's sending me anything worth talking about. So, to cope with this dearth of interesting gear (although I will tell you about the Blondie box set so you can stick it on your Xmas lists) I'm going to do this:
An advent calendar. A Xmas song per day. None of that 'Ronan Keating slaughters Fairytale of New York' (it exists, don't look for it, you'll regret it) rubbish. NO. We're doing credible Xmas songs.
The question is: are there enough credible Xmas songs? Well we're going to find out aren't we? One per day until I press the surrender button and give you Wham or Band Aid because I've run out. Can it be done?
Well, James Brown has an entire album of the things - James Brown's Funky Christmas. So, let's get festive with 'Santa Claus, Go Straight To The Ghetto' (it's real, I'm not making it up) and while we're at it - stick some of our lovely earphones on your pressie list.
