If I didn't know better, I'd say there's been a Christmas kick happenin' on here, and I'm not talking 'bout candy canes and mistletoe. Check out the comments section of the hyperlink above for a better explanation. One Christmas song that hasn't been seemingly unearthed heretofore is a cut titled "Close My Eyes," which can be found on the 4-song Laughing at the Ground 7'' compilation. Released on the Propeller Records label a quarter of a century ago, Laughing zeroes in on a quartet of post-punk/no wave fence straddlers from Boston, MA or thereabouts. Christmas' contribution is particularly their most substantive or crucial, but a completists delight nonetheless. The lead-off band, 21-645 turned out to be an unexpected treat, and from my understanding members went onto Scruffy the Cat and The Flies. Their cut here, "Babble" has been covered by the Moving Targets from what I understand. The band V; has a website. I won't kid you folks, this is a noisy chunk of wax, so in the near future, when I'll hopefully obtain some vinyl cleaner, I very well may repost this if the results are satisfactory.
