Throwback Thursday - Nick Lowe

December 18, 2014
We're a week out from Christmas already!(!!!!!!!)
This week last year, we added a TON of Christmas music, but one of the best (in our humble opinion) was Nick Lowe's Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection for All the Family, out on Yep Roc:



Music Director, Alicia, had this to say about the album:

Old-school rocker creates his own (hilarious) versions of Christmas songs, based on "vulgar, tawdry commercialism," but with some hope and joy mixed in. As heard on NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!" and "A Prairie Home Companion."

In fact, she still has "Christmas In the Airport" stuck in her head...

Merry Christmas, from the Music Bureau!
