Arge is back with a full on festive feast of a Cinematronica show. Featuring the tunes of Christmas past, present and future. (If that’s even possible).
We launch into a lively part one with Goldfrapp, Saint Etienne, Sufjan Stevens, Summer Camp and Eels.
Then in part two things take on a magical feel as Danny Elfman, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Cat Power, Vince Guaraldi Trio, Low and Kate Bush all help to provide a score to Dylan Thomas’s “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”.
Then the final part of this epic festive selection has a more classic Christmas feel with Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Phil Spector and of course, Bing Crosby.
If you’re not stuffed full of Christmas cheer after this lot then call me Ebenezer (Scrooge that is, not Goode).
If you’re driving home this Christmas you could do a lot worse than play JimDoes’ festive special. He’s created the perfect indie mixtape featuring Christmas songs by Half Man Half Biscuit, LCD Soundsystem, Allo Darlin’, Super Furry Animals, Summer Camp and a host of others – all of which were Christmas No1s in the alternate universe that exists in Jims head.
We thought we’d take the opportunity to draw your attention to this show from last winter. It caused quite a stir at the time, and is a haunting and compulsive listen.
It’s Christmas, or there abouts. Cosmically speaking, you think you think that matters ? You think fate gives a shit ? karma steps it up a notch ? nope. The whole random arbitrary brutality of humanity trundles on.
If it is supposed to be the season of goodwill to all men, Shouldn’t someone tell the universe ?
BD Harrington explores the human heart in all of it’s mysterious, unfathomable depths with a program of curios and torch tales against a backdrop of music that finds solace in the bleakest of midwinters. Seasons greetings.
Well, this is it. The inescapable pagan festival of Yule is upon us. Those capitalist henge-huggers have lost sight of the true meaning haven’t they ? Well no chance of that here at Seeks Towers. We’ve got a bunch of shows that’ll remind you what it’s all about. Read more…
