ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MODERN CHRISTMAS CLASSICS IN VARIOUS STYLES - "Christmas Classics" because they are Christmas standards, generally dating from the 1950's and before.

"Modern" and "in various styles" because BLITCH BANGO takes a few liberties in bringing them up to date.

Song styles range from rock to reggae, new wave to new age, folk to cocktail jazz, but all with pop overtones, and all decidely BLITCH BANGO.

MODERN CHRISTMAS CLASSICS IN VARIOUS STYLES is for the listener who prefers Elvis Costello over Elvis Presley, Talking Heads over Motorhead, XTC over TLC, Vince Guaraldi over Vince Gill, Juan Esquivel over Gloria Estefan, and Dr Seuss over Dr. Dre.

BLITCH BANGO's main influences include The Beatles and bands of the New Wave movement (Eno, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads), but also draws influence from Bob Dylan, the roots rock of early R.E.M. and Neil Young, the psychedelia of Robyn Hitchcock, and the rough hewn edges of The Clash and Lou Reed.

Added to this is an additional peppering of abstraction from be-bop, lounge, and cocktail jazz resulting in a style that cannot be easily compared to any one entity.

Really Modern-Classics
This is one of the best collections of holiday music I've ever hear. Only Modern Christmas songs show how much the media has changed.

Rumours about an excellent Christmas collection are true!
Shortly after purchasing this disc, the author send you a personal thank you for buying it. I thought that was exceptionally cool. So's the entire collection here. There are some instrumentals, a bit of ska, some XTC moments, and maybe even a touch of REM. But it all comes out sounding original. Sign up on the Blitch Bango website, it's a great site.
