2. The Fall ‘No Xmas For John Quays’
Trust Mark E Smith to do the best sneer at the yuletide.
Of course this song is not strictly a xmas song but it’s a perfect slice of malcontent madness and sneering and is a perfect slice from the Fall’s debut album that sounds as earth as hard as iron cold as the north was at the time. A perfect antidote to the knees up jolly of the time of the year as Smith delivers his drug fuelled paean to some psychic madness. He even sings ‘Good King Webcles last looked out, silly bugger he fell out…’ in the middle of the song- what is there not to love about this song!
