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.Posted by david on December 01, 2003
