When Nick Lowe was approached by his record label about making a Christmas album, his reaction wasn't exactly one of comfort and joy.

"It was more disquiet and alarm, accompanied by feelings of 'Do they really think I would wish to sully my good name on this tawdry and vulgar commercialism?' Lowe says with a laugh. "But that feeling lasted about thirty-six and a half seconds, before I came to and thought, 'Vulgar, tawdry commercialism? Yes, please, when do we start?' Seriously, I thought, 'Wait a minute, this could be really good fun.'"

And so it was, Nick and cohorts had an absolute ball doing it.

Nick penned 2 NEW songs for the project, there is a co-write with Ry Cooder, Ron Sexsmith wrote a song and they tackle the Wizzard classic 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day along with several other covers.

You might say it's the kind of record that gives vulgar, tawdry commercialism a good name.

Press Quotes

"The former 'Jesus Of Cool' deserves to find a whole new following for this consistently entertaining, often touching and, in its knowingly cheesy way, extremely cool Christmas album"
