Christmas - In Excelsior Dayglo (1986, IVR)

Couple weeks ago I got a pretty hep request for Christmas' (the band) idiosyncratic debut In Excelsior Dayglo...and here it is.  While I'm considerably partial to their much more developed sophomore disk, Ultraprophets..., (circa 1989) IED revels in it's own indigenous vibe - sometimes dissonant, occasionally challenging and always unscrupulously skewed.  This Beantown co-ed trio, splits up vocal duties between string wrangler Michael Cudahy and drummer Liz Cox, the latter bearing no small resemblance to the B-52's Kate Pierson.  Writ large, there isn't a pervasive pop angle to the record, and from a sonic standpoint Christmas remind me heavily of indie contemps Agitpop and Volcano Suns.  To a lesser extent, the Pixies too, but that's a loose comparison at best.  As mentioned, their next record proved to be more substantive, but there's no disputing that much like the holiday they nabbed their namesake from Christmas were indeed a singular and revealing entity.

I've always really liked "Loved Ones" on this. It's so pretty but when you listen to the words it's horrible and creepy.
Also, you mentioned Agitpop, great great band. I really dig their first two LPs. Total top notch stuff.

The band namely idiosyncratic has launched their first debut album few days ago. I haven't listened their songs yet, But my friend was praising about their voice and songs.

Haven't heard or thought even once of this record in 30 years, but I remember every song every hook every idiosyncrasy like I played it yesterday. I take back all the awful things I said about the internet earlier today. Thank you for this. And you say a second record is even better?
