Have yourself a hillbilly Christmas

I decided to get this the other day after hearing one of the tracks on MOJO's Electra compilation. I was vaguely aware of them due to Gene Clark having recorded a couple of albums with one of them (looked it up: Doug). It's a full on bluegrass affair which, if I'm remembering the blurb in the magazine right, was recorded as a fuck off to the label which backfired by becoming a hit (I love it when that happens). Seems harsh though, I'd have thought Electra was a very cool set up.

I'm safely tucked away up north for Christmas now, after a nightmare journey. I think I might grow a beard.


  1. Merry Christmas Tog (but do have a shave) x

  2. Cheers Davy, and Merry Christmas to you and the Family H. The beard's suffered a bit of a set back actually - standards are more rigorously enforced at the in-laws.
