The Family Cat - Jesus Christ

You lucky, lucky people... Look what Santa's pulled out of the bag just for you, this festive season. I was actually looking for another 7" with a Christmas theme, but this one turned up instead, so you're going to have another treat in, well, about a year.

This is a great cover of an Alex Chilton track, by the band who the phrase 'Indie stalwarts' could have been invented for, if indeed it had ever been invented. Yer main b-side is a karaoke version, so your family can start their very own Christmas tradition, right here, right now. The other b-sides are just silly, but what do you expect this time of year? And there's the most annoying exit groove loop yet - even more than the SFA ones.

Enjoy this, enjoy Christmas, enjoy New Year, best wishes to you all, and see you in 2010 for more partying like it's 1995...

1. Jesus Christ
2. Chill Out Ye Merry Gentlemen
3. Jesus Karaoke Christ
4. Christ Jesus

Ho ho ho.


  1. Very good band and very good christmas single. Thanks very much.

  2. That's got my latest Christmas mix-tape off to a cracking jangly start!

  3. Is it just me or are there loads of skips on the b sides?

  4. I've got a rip of this, but there's way more crackle than on yours from my mashed up vinyl, but yours has skips on chill out and jesus karaoke christ. I'll try and splice them together for you if you'd like?

  5. Hi Boomhaueruk. Thanks for the offer, that would be cool. Sorry for the skips, I seem to have gone through a period around then where I didn't proof-listen very efficiently.
