What to Do?
The 27th of December, what's it for?
For recovering from 2 days of excess, whether that be food, drink, relations or all 3? Or for contemplating the festivities of next weekend.
In this household, I have decreed that it is for doing sweet FA. Apart from maybe playing Mini Ninja's on the X-Box or being Boba Fett chasing Han Solo in what is a damn impressive Millenium Falcon with M. But what there will be is lots of music, of my choice, played loud and there won't be a Christmas themed song in the mix.
I can't think of a better way to start than playing this, from a box set, that I didn't really need, as it contained about 8 tracks that I didn't own but which was a much appreciated gift from L last Christmas.
The Jesus And Mary Chain - Just Like Honey (Demo Oct '84)
and as a bonus the Reid Brothers take on Leonard Cohen. I wonder what Christmas would have been like in the Reid household?
