Product Notes

MODERN CHRISTMAS CLASSICS IN VARIOUS STYLES - 'Christmas Classics' because they are Christmas standards, generally dating from the 1950's and before. 'Modern' and 'in various styles' because Blitch Bango takes a few liberties in bringing them up to date. Song styles range from rock to reggae, new wave to new age, folk to cocktail jazz, but all with pop overtones, and all decidely Blitch Bango. MODERN CHRISTMAS CLASSICS IN VARIOUS STYLES is for the listener who prefers Elvis Costello over Elvis Presley, Talking Heads over Motorhead, XTC over TLC, Vince Guaraldi over Vince Gill, Juan Esquivel over Gloria Estefan, and Dr Seuss over Dr. Dre. Blitch Bango's main influences include The Beatles and bands of the New Wave movement (Eno, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads), but also draws influence from Bob Dylan, the roots rock of early R.E.M. and Neil Young, the psychedelia of Robyn Hitchcock, and the rough hewn edges of The Clash and Lou Reed. Added to this is an additional peppering of abstraction from be-bop, lounge, and cocktail jazz resulting in a style that cannot be easily compared to any one entity.
