Weekend Long Player: “In Excelsior Dayglo” by Christmas

When I had this one in the queue, how could I not post it on the weekend before Christmas? Of course, it’s not actually anything to do with yuletide, nor is it even camp. Christmas was the band that singing guitarist Michael Cudahy and singing drummer Liz Cox were in before forming Combustible Edison, and it’s really nothing like that group’s lounge revival sound – more like angular art-school new wave. They released three albums in this guise, of which this from 1986 was the first. Some actual Christmas music from Combustible Edison can be found here.
