O Holy Night

Despite my lack of religion and the fact that this song has been done to death, I thought I'd give it a shot.

Tubular Carol of the Jingle Bells

Does just what it says on the box, and then some.

Christmas Island

I made my children to sing on another Christmas song. In three-part harmony. Merry Christmas, everybody.

Amazing Grace

Thought I'd jump in to the holiday spirit at the last second: Here is a version of Amazing Grace I did back in 2003 for guitar, 2 musical saws, and xylophone (the toy kind with wheels that you drag around by a string). Recorded into Cubase via the tiny microphone on my old 12" powerbook.

Auld Lang Syne

In keeping with tradition, here again are the Demons of Gyrophonia ringing in 2011 with the same old song. [more inside]

Oh Come All Ye Slothful

We Three Kings

And finally, The Christmas Album closes on a low note--literally, this time. After all, where's the fun in having a contrabassoon at your disposal if you're not going to do something wacky with it?* *Headphones recommended for maximum head-rattling [more inside]

Winter Wonderland

It's one of my least favorite christmas carols, so it seemed appropriate to tackle it instead of something that I cherish (and therefore wasn't willing to tamper with). Decided to drop a verse or two, because let's face it...who isn't a little sick of christmas music.

Silent Night

Extremely spartan recording, for me. Vox, piano, a simple vox harmony, and a melodica solo. [more inside]

Up on the Housetop

Because this holiday tune appears on every beginning band's premiere concert program, it's one of my favorite to mock. [more inside]

What Child is This?

We all thought as hard as we could, to come up with a Christmas song that none of us hate, so we could do it semi-reverently, in a manner which at least resembles proper. It took so many takes to get it right that now we hate this song, too. [more inside]

Driving Home For Christmas

Quick and dirty cover of Chris Rea's gruffly charming classic. Hope Chris doesn't mind me breaking in and rearranging the furniture a little. Merry Christmas everyone!!

From Olga

Arnaud wasn't just about the techno noise. He was an enormous fan of Laurie Andersen's Oh, Superman and had assembled a vocoder himself by taking apart the family's old tube TV. His mother Olga, who was not an educated woman, could not write without speaking aloud, and so one day when he heard her writing a letter, he snuck a microphone under the rickety table, fed it to his home-made recorder, and began to play along...

Want To Embarrass That Irritating Twat Of A Relative/Colleague At This Year's Christmas Get-Together? - Dundee Tells You How - For FREE!

Instrumental version of an earlier upload - on reflection the singing sounded less like herald angels and more like cats fucking, except not quite feline enough. Dammit. Anyway - if your Crimbo party starts to sag invite that irritating relative or co-worker to sing along and make an utter twat of him/herself! Remember to point out they have to do it a la John Lydon....

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (MagiMix)

Picking up on media hype about a strange new star that's getting beardy-wierdies very excited, local New Wave outfit The HeBeGeeBees (Maurice, Barry and Ruben) decide the time is ripe to release their debut single. Recorded live at a packed-to-the-rafters Holiday Inn Bethlehem, the track is coupled with the riske “Herod Blew My Camel, No Really". [more inside]

Christmas Wrapping

Cover of The Waitresses classic recorded for Christmas 2006 and featuring my daughters Jennifer and Stephanie on vocals. Their English accents make it sound like a Bananarama outtake. I will shortly be uploading something that will almost certainly qualify for the "Naughty" podcast even if it doesn't make the cut.....
