LIST 56 - 24/12/10 (Christmas Special, part two)

As promised, and indeed threatened, here is the second half of the That Music List Christmas Special for your delight and delectation just 24 hours shy of the main event. Nothing too festive about the likes of The Fall and HT & OJ's respective efforts, of course, but the likes of the late Frank Sidebottom certainly redress the pro-Christmas balance and then some.

That's it from That Music List until sometime in the New Year (probably midwinter), but return it will. All that remains for me to do is to thank everyone who's been in touch about the blog this year and last, and anyone else who has enjoyed the selections over this period of time. Certainly more to come... 'Til then, however, very best wishes of the season to you all, and may 2011 deal you a kind hand.
