The Rebel Black Dot Christmas Song of the Day
Reel Big Fish, "Carol of the Beers" from the Happy Skalidays E.P. (The Last Jolly Man)
Skammentary: Lest "Whatever U Celebrate" made one doubt what had happened to the Reel Big Fish, "Carol of the Beers" assures the concerned listener that they are still as uncouth as they've always been. "Carol of the Bells" is reproduced by the continual repetition of the word "beer," which is actually kind of impressive, but beneath that we hear a series of tabbed cans opening & being crushed, liquid being guzzled, & belches erupting.
Yes, the most consistently impressive facet of The Secret Base is its refinement & sophistication.
