AND HOLIDAY BLOW-OUT-A-GO-GO!!!
THE LOST CRUSADERS
Plus: Master Of Ceremonies Handsome Dick Manitoba
(The Dictators) and DJ Phast Phreddie (Subway Soul Club).
Fresh off the heels of this year's critically adored Take A Good Look and their long overdue biography Sweat: The Story of the Fleshtones, America's Garage Band by Joe Bonomo, Brooklyn's most unsung sons are back with their warped personal take on Christmas music.
From the garage rock gods who brought the world "Super Rock," Stocking Stuffer is the Christmas album for music fans who hate run-of-the mill Christmas music. The Fleshtones just want to rock and they're not about to let peace on earth or good will to men get in the way.
"Hooray for Santa Claus" opens the disc with a speaker busting ode to the guy in the big red suit and "Champagne of Christmas" looks back to The Fleshtones' classic r&b roots while extolling the virtues of more than a little yuletide bubbly. Stocking Stuffer is festive enough to get you in the holiday mood but rocks hard enough to keep the eggnog flowing through mistletoe make-out sessions and drunken sing-a-longs. If Santa is cool enough to leave this little gem in your stocking, this year you'll actually look forward to Christmas music.
