I'm waiting for Santa Claus, he's riding on a bison sleigh

One of my favorite bands. I finally got to see them live a few years ago, and again last year when they came through town. They're so fun, charming, and unassuming and very much worth your time. I love this track, it's great, goofy fun and doesn't feel like tacky sentimental crap. They're just a band out to have a good time and they want you to have a good time as well.

Listen:
Shonen Knife > Space Christmas

Is this a spoof? These guys are for real?

"Wow." That's all I can say.

It has to be said, this whole 'obscure christmas songs' thing is great. Most of them are dreadful but that's to be expected for christmas songs really isn't it? ;-)

Henry Rollins is my fave so far!

Yeah, they're real. You should check em out, they're really goofy fun.

I don't know how/why I got on the Christmas songs kick this year, tho. Kinda strange, but I've been enjoying it.

You immediately know this is Shonen Knife! If I were in a band, I couldn't care less about doing a Christmas song, but this one is SO them and really cute. :)

I've never really liked my music cute or goofy I'm afraid... Filthy, loud and pumping maybe, cute...? Nah!

Bah humbug! ;-)
