Yes it's still more holiday music. But, it's the Sonics, and it doesn't matter what the song is about, if it has that drum sound, and that fuzz, I'm buying in. It's their "Santa Claus", which is essentially Don and Dewey's "Farmer John" with different lyrics. I ran into it at The Decibel Tolls, in a holiday oriented post from two year ago, with the Fall, Esquivel, Can, the Ventures, the Blues Magoos, and about twenty other bands that I give less of a shit about. But the Sonics one is a particular favorite because it contains what is perhaps the greatest guitar solo I've heard. A battle of the fuzz box and the whammy bar, thirty fucked up seconds that never seem to go anywhere.
