Christmas Magic With The Singing Saw
And the yuletide cheer keeps a comin’! Now then, here at The Old Record Club we loves us a bit of singing saw, not only does it have a haunting and beautiful sound but you can cut up fire wood with it if you need to. Here’s a full records worth of christmas numbers featuring the saw from a Mr Julian Koster. It’s pretty much the saw and little else on the record and maybes it could do with a little more backing to give it more interest but its wonderful in little doses and the tunes are clear so you can all sing-a-long. Mr Koster is or was part the elephant 6 collective and as such played on our very dearly beloved ‘In The Aeroplane Over The Sea’ by Neutral Milk Hotel. Randy contacted me all excited not the other day on account Jeff Mangum has been playing a live show or two again after a lengthy spell away from performin’. So who knows whether that’ll lead to anything more – put it on yer wish list to old Santy Claus eh?
