Thank You and Happy Holidays!

thursday, december 22nd, 2005 at 02:38 pm

Just want to thank everyone that came out to the Empty Bottle last weekend. We hugely hugely appreciate your kindness, support and dancing. I hope y’all had as much fun as we did!

I’m at my folks place, so i’ll make this quick:
First, whipped up a quick little cover for the holidays. It is a seriously revised version of a Pogues song. Have a listen and happy holidays!

Fairytale of New York [3.5MB] [mp3]

For a more traditional take on the song, check out the super good Toronto blog Chromewaves for a brillant Stars’ version of Fairytale of New York [5.6MB] [mp3]. UPDATE: Time’s up on this one. By the way, if you’ve not spent time with Stars’ late 2004 release Set Yourself on Fire, spend your Xmas gift cards on it. Second best record i heard and best live show i saw in 2005!

Oh, some impossibly kind reviews have been coming for Uh-Oh, check the Reviews page. Many thanks to all the writers who’ve taken time and shown interest!

So, happy holidays everyone, and peace and joy in the New Year!

dont forget to sign your band up on the site, just follow the directions after you sign up as a member of the USound, and load a pic, a bio and a mp3 and all of 757 will have acess to you before you come around the mountain. We have been getting bands from all over the U.S.
