Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #027 - Christmas is Cancelled

Personally I'm a fan of Christmas, but I couldn't help but notice that lots of people like to complain about it. They may well be right. It's quite commercialised and it starts too early - these seem to be indisputable facts. All the same, though, it's a cliche to be cynical about the whole thing. There are lots of people who enjoy it a great deal, and if you don't want to join in with it all then spoiling their fun seems mean and petty. Why not listen to this selection of anti-festive songs instead?

1. The Fall - No Xmas For John Quays
2. Cristina - Things Fall Apart
3. The Kinks - Father Christmas
4. John Lennon - Cold Turkey
5. Loudon Wainwright III - Conspiracies
6. The Sonics - Don't Believe In Christmas
7. Sufjan Stevens - That Was The Worst Christmas Ever!
8. Joni Mitchell - River
9. Tom Waits - Christmas Cards From A Hooker In Minneapolis
10. Low - Just Like Christmas
11. The Long Blondes - Christmas Is Cancelled
12. Half Man Half Biscuit - It's Cliched To Be Cynical At Christmas

Bonus tracks (after the gap):

Kunt & The Gang - All I Want For Christmas Is You (To Bring Me Off)
Mr Garrison - Merry Fucking Christmas

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #025 - The Unfair Funfair

This one has been in the planning stages for years, and is being put out there only at the stage of my finally giving up on ever making it what I want it to be. The idea originally was to combine the creepy waltzes of two of these tracks with a general theme of evil fairs. Since then I've waded through a huge amount of embarrasing goth-cabaret nonsense, some of which lingers here still.

Anyway, it's not a bad mix, not exactly. It was pretty good when I listened to it a couple of nights ago, but just annoying when I put it on again this morning. I suppose you have to be in the right sort of mood.


1. Minty - Procession 2. The Stranglers - Waltzinblack 3. Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel - Mr Soft 4. Pulp - Fairground 5. Broadcast - Phantom 6. The Human League - Circus of Death 7. Circus Contraption - The Odditorium / Carousel 8. Irvin's 89 Key Marenghi Fairground Organ - Help! 9. The Beatles - Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite! 10. Scunner - Lost at the Fair

What should the next mix be about?
