Presents! The First Annual Christmas EP - UPDATE!

Inspired by a cover of the First Noel by my current neighbor and fellow former Kansas Citian Matthew Dunehoo (The Baby Teardrops) and his former band mate, Mike Walker (Olympic Size), I asked the great Duquette Johnson (Duquette Johnston and the Rebel Kings) and Chris Edwards (Jonathan Vassar and the Speckled Bird) if they, too, could croon out some old carols for the blog.  Lucky for us all, both of these boys from Birmingham sure came through.  So, here we have the blog's first annual Christmas EP (well, three great songs you can all download). Merry Christmas, everyone!  Hope you enjoy!  (And thank you so, so much to Matthew, Duke and Chris!)

1. The First Noel by Matthew & Michael
2. Oh, Holy Night by Duquette Johnston
3. Little Drummer Boy by Chris Edwards

(And for extra fun...Where we Americans may shed trou or smooch co-workers with reckless abandon at our evening/night time corporate holiday parties, the Danes face up to the annual ritual midday - with a bit more herring, a lot more Aquavit and riotous barrel-chested chanting.  Here we have Bjarke Bendtsen (The Migrant) leading a crew of snaps-filled Christmas lunchers belting out Bjarne Haahr's 1974 classic (to some), Nu Skal Vi Ha Gilde (Now We're Going to Have a Feast!). 

Nu skal vi ha gilde

Nu skal vi ha gilde, ja nu ska’ vi ha fest!
Vi ska’ ha det stor kolde bord med våde dramme,
sild ….i karry, sild .. i sherry, portvinssild og norske sild 
og sild i dill med akelejer, så små postejer,
til slutt en og’ gammel ost!

    Wholesale Jeans are no doubt a very profitable business. They are presented in huge quantity ranging from low price tag to

    high one. Both women and men mostly prefer blue jeans. Hence wholesale jeans are the best option. Wholesale Jeans suppliers

    most frequently reach their customer directly with the help of internet by promoting their product online....
