ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Editorial Reviews of “Gridlock Christmas”

“I thought Gridlock Christmas was one of the best Christmas items we received this past holiday season!”
- Dr. Demento (American Radio Personality)

“For trenchant comment, few Christmas novelties can top “Christmas Is Coming Twice This Year” by the Hollytones.”
- Steven Otfinoski, author, The Golden Age of Novelty Songs

“It takes real musical talent to spoof real musical talent. The Hollytones-a trio of veteran Orange County musicians, plus a large guest cast-pull it off on this charming, well-wrought and impressively varied collection. The album’s 14 original Christmas songs work on two levels. There’s pop-parody as the Hollytones send up or pay homage to a wide array of styles: Elvis Presley and Ray Charles, vaudevillian crooning and Merle Haggard-style working-man’s honky-tonk blues, Beach Boys lofty harmonizing, psychedelic rock and even New Age music. And there are playful, occasionally pointed observations in Yule-related lyrics and skits that range from the gently barbed to the sweetly sentimental.”
-Mike Boehm (The Los Angeles Times)

“Orange County’s own Hollytones have hit No. 1 on Dr. Demento’s Funny Five with their skewed look at divorce during the holidays, Christmas Is Coming Twice This Year.”
-Mark Brown (Orange County Register)

---------------------

“Gridlock Christmas” and “Christmas is coming Twice This Year” were included on Dr. Demento’s “Christmas in Dementia” CD on the Rhino Label in 1995. Since then, these two songs have received steady rotation on numerous broadcast, internet and satellite radio stations.

The Gridlock Christmas CD had a limited release in 1992. After many requests, the Hollytones decided to re-release the complete CD in 2007.

The Hollytones are Brian Curtin, Floyd Elliot and John Wheeler. They are currently working on their next collection of inspired lunacy, “Holiday Fever”.

Strange Season
I got this for Christmas this year and just got around to listening to it. This is good stuff! I had heard the Gridlock Song on the radio and really liked it, but I didn't know these guys had made a Whole album.
My favorite so far is "Strange Season"; What a coolidea - It's like spending Christmas with the Iron Butterfly listening to Jim Morrison recite bad poetry. Also Do the Snowman and Merry Christmas Sandi arefirst rate 60's Christmas stuff.
