Happy Holidays, my sweets!
I spent the holiday drinking heavily and making Mexican food, a new tradition I forged in the molten depths of my solitude last Christmas… but this year is way different! I’m celebrating the “reason for the season” with a fun song by a band which takes its name from the holiday observance of the immaculate conception of Christ.

The track is titled, “Ice Cream City”, and can be found on the Shonen Knife tribute album, Every Band Has A Shonen Knife Who Loves Them. It’s a cover of an SK song done by the obscure Massachusetts punk trio, Christmas. When covering Japanese bands, many singers opt for the translations, but Christmas takes on the original J-lyrics thus earning a place on a blog designed to question the nature of J-music. I’m sure they’re proud! In any case, enjoy the tune and enjoy the holidays and have a beer or six for me and St. Nick-san!
