Tim McMahon's Rockin' Christmas VI

Every year, for the past 6 years, my friend Tim makes a holiday mix, scratch that, it's a proper Christmas mix. If you don't celebrate Christmas I ask that you look past that and check it out - this time of the year is festive and celebratory - those vibes are captured herein.

It's the 18th of December and I was beginning to lose hope on the continuity of these records. The mix is eclectic, atypical, includes classic and new bands, and is effective at it's message. Here's the tracklist:
  • Dear Santa Claus - Billy Childish & the Musicians of the British Empire
  • X-Mas Song - Fireflies
  • A Christmas Camel - Procol Harum
  • If Christmas Can't Bring You Home - Reigning Sound
  • Christmas in Space - Touchers
  • Little Stars - Holly Golightly and The Greenhornes
  • It's Christmas Time (Yeah We're Gonna Rock) - The Flat Duo Jets
  • Happy ChristM.A.S.S. - M.A.S.S.
  • Come on Santa - The Raveonettes
  • Space Christmas - Shonen Knife
  • Happy Fucking Holidays - Starfucker
  • Plastic Christmas Trees - Summer Cats
  • Flowers for Albion - Parenthetical Girls
  • I Don't Intend to Spend Christmas Without you - Claudine Longet
  • Mr. Santa Claus - Nathaniel Mayer
  • Ain't No Chimneys - Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
  • Christmas Time Is Here Again (1967 outtake) - The Beatles
This year's mix also includes a supplement mix, which is a tradition that began 2 years ago. I only began reposting his mixes last year and as long as he posts these, I will repost them.
