A lot of people have been chasing for a podcast of our Christmas Special that aired live on Resonance last December (the 21st, to be precise), so I’m pleased to say it is finally online for you to wrap your loving ears around.
I should also outline that we’re now going to podcast these shows on a separate feed to the Rhythm Incursions one, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, there are other Rhythm Inc podcasts I needed to get online, and I felt these live shows would get lost in amongst them. Secondly, its quite clear these Trick n’ Tom shows are developing a fanbase of their own, and so it only makes sense to provide them separately for people on that basis.
So: if you need a URL to paste into your podcatcher of choice, it is: http://feeds.feedburner.com/mrtrickandwrongtom. If you’re an iTunes user, search for us in the Podcast Directory as usual. I’ve only just added the feed, so maybe give it a couple of days to get approved and all that.
In the meantime though, download the show here (78Mb). Enjoy!
Welcome then our first of two Christmas Specials, in which the dynamic (*ahem!*) duo select a diverse bunch of yuletide-related cuts for your delectation. On this first show, tunes aired include some hawaiian guitar festivity, some midget-funk courtesy of The Purple One, two mighty soul legends in the form of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, Scandinavian Spector-ness from The Raveonettes and even the frankly rather grim tale of “Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa” from De La Soul. Matters discussed include Trick’s new Chesterfield armchair/sofa combo, the mighty port sipper glasses, Prince’s festive loving arrangements, the forthcoming Specials reunion and much more. One thing’s for sure: this isn’t the kind of festive drivel you see on MTV where Tony Christie palms you off with more bloody Cliff Richard. O Come All Ye Faithful indeed!

If you’re familiar with the format already, you’ll know we wont be rolling out the usual festive favourites but we can assure a cavalcade of curious Christmas records which in the past have covered anything from sleigh bell drenched Hawaiian hits to William Burroughs growling about heroine abuse on a cold winter night.[..]
