    It's been a another tough year under a layer of Teflon... where would we be without the Fall at Christmas time?!

    Yes, that is William S Burroughs. And this is pretty cool from Tom Waits

    A sinful Christmas wish... that Aaron Tokona does something magical funk heaven mashup with the Nielson brothers in 2016! Enjoy your day wherever you are... i'm heading outside and Into the Sunshine

  • Ross Francis,

    There is of course this version of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' with Mariah Carey and, um, Jimmy Fallon. It doesn't sound like a girl band at all!

    Tex Tips…
    Was at the Cabana website today and noticed the excellent guide for musicians performing there compiled by the late Ian Morris seems to have disappeared;
    Found it on the Wayback machine – it is still applicable to most live performing situations and should maybe be added to Audioculture’s Ian Morris page somehow (along with his recording tips too)…
