The Show: This song is for you…

This is not a Christmas special.

It’s definitely NOT a Christmas special but we do start proceedings with THE FALL’S peerless version of JINGLE BELL ROCK. If you can handle that opening salvo you’ll be rewarded with many seasonal gifts such as a sneaky threesome from Otāutahi Christchurch label Club Unique, some dark synths from Distant Stars, beautiful Parisian electro pop via Il Est Vilaine plus too many others to name.

And on with the show…
