Right, here's the mailout....

Yay! Rah! etc. etc. Sunday is here again, and so are the downloads..........
Where do we start? With one of those posts where you say to yourself "Jesus, what happened to THEM?" (providing you can remember them in the first place)
So, from the era of The JoBoxers and The Stray Cats, here's some Roman Holiday........

Here's a HUGE post of Xmas songs (you can get the lot as a zip file) but in amongst them all is my favourite Xmas song ever, the only one ever to bring a tear to my eye: "I'm Getting Pissed For Christmas" by Peter And The Test Tube Babies

How about some live Oasis? Oh go on then................

If you haven't got the Soulwax/Gossip remix, you haven't lived...and the squeakeklean remix of Teddybears is THE FUCKING KNOCK as well :))))))
