weird x-mas

Just when you thought you'd heard a lot of strange Xmas music, in walks Mark Mothersbaugh (Yes! Devo!). He's an American painter and musician but most important he was one of the original members of the (art)punk band DEVO. He likes strange and weird music. In 1999 he released an album called 'Joyeux Mutato'. I never saw it, it was strictly limited. This year he did put one of the album tracks on a beautiful looking 7 inch. 'I don't Have A Christmas Tree' is a strange sort of mash up and looks to be a very unusual cover of  'Silent Night'. Also check out the 'stupid' B-side 'Jingles Jingles Jingles'
