UOGB Holiday CD

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has a new Holiday CD out. ( Or should we say "the Orchestra...have"?)
"The Season's Greetings have a complex palimpsest of meanings and references. The Mass of Christ and the Celebration of Mammon. Jolly wholesome Western secular songs and strange Northern European folk melodies. Mindless pop and holy piety. Santa Claus, a Toby Jug, a turkey, a pine tree, a solstice, a renewal and gift giving. Sit back with a glass of something cheering and enjoy this album as a backdrop to your festivities, the ukulele soundtrack to a traditional xmas with all it's contradictions. Merry Christmas from the UOGB. Wotcher (What Cheer!)."
