8 Days of Christmas #2: Shonen Knife
This track from everyone’s favourite all-gal, Japanese punk-pop band, Shonen Knife, may
not make one jot of sense, but it’s positively dripping in youthful
Christmas cheer. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa, who apparently
travels by ‘bison sleigh’, the girls hope for a spaceship so they can
fly to Pluto and eat ice cream. Makes dry turkey and lumpy gravy round
Auntie Jeane’s look rather unexciting, doesn’t it?
I mainly posted this one because I was thinking of Major Tim Peake spending his Christmas in Space at the International Space Station.
