Stars, Gideon Coe, BBC 6Music, 9 December 2005

Happy Holidays everybody. I am pleased to announce that Chris C. is the winner of the Memphis contest. The b(oot)log elves will be shipping the cd and other goodies off once they finish wrapping all the gifts that I am supposed to have under the tree by tomorrow morning. Congratulations Chris and thanks to everyone who entered.

Because I am in the giving mood, I thought I would share an extra little post with you all that has ties to both Memphis and Christmas (convenient!). Here, for you listening pleasure, is a Stars session with Gideon Coe from last year. It features not only one of my favourite Stars songs but a great (if slightly less gritty than the original) cover of the fantastic Pogues song “Fairytale of New York,” which may just be the best Christmas song ever written. Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
