about

Recorded for Jon Solomon's 25-Hour Christmas Show On WPRB!

Ostensibly this was supposed to be a more straight ahead cover of Paul McCartney's 1979 goofy holiday bleeper, "Wonderful Christmastime," but we got more into the looping drone we were using as a key reference and went with that vibe instead, kinda filtering Macca through his '68 Maharishi meditation in Rishikesh.

Ben emailed some drum and percussion recordings of himself from his new digs in Chicago and Greg tracked his bass in GarageBand, soaking his feet in an Epsom salt bath while wearing nothing more than his favorite METZ t-shirt. Then Michael and I got back to the d-r-o-n-e, losing ourselves in the waterfall swirls of delay while The Colonel and Clams provided snacks and spiritual surveillance. It was fun. Om, bruddah.

lyrics

The moon is right
The spirits up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

The party's on
The feeling's here
That only comes
This time of year

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

The word is out
About the town
To lift a glass
Ah, don't look down

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

The party's on
The spirits up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

The moon is right
The spirits up
We're here tonight
Oh and that's enough

We're simply having a wonderful Christmastime
