Perhaps taking this discussion back down the "bleakness" trail.
Maybe, but can't fault the quality of the writing there...
Nice to see the Grip Weeds in on the action. They have a new Xmas record out now.
I am new.. so am I allowed to shamelessly plug me-self???

Great, looks like a lot of fun.
With the Krayolas, and Augie Meyers--even this Christmas song doesn't blow. (Start at about 1:33 to get past the claptrap).
This just came out on Tramp Records, for those of you who like a little Soul in your Christmas music.
