Santa Claus and Crusty Queen

The first mp3 this week is Belle & Sebastian covering the James Brown classic, "Santa Claus, Go Straight To The Ghetto." The song was taken from last year's December Peel session, which included a liberal sprinkling of holiday tunes.

I've been listening to a lot of Pavement lately, especially the remastered Slanted and Enchanted. Steven Malkmus has always fascinated me, and when he formed the Crust Brothers with the members of Silkworm, I was excited at the musical possibilities. The band focuses on classic rock covers, including "Mississippi Queen," which I've made available this week from a 2000 New Year's Eve show in Seattle.

Is there a way for me to hear that B&S cover still, or have I missed my chance? Stupid "page not available."

Oops, I just fixed the B&S link. Sorry for the inconvenience.
