Hey, all: I hope you’re doing all right. Got a holiday song here for you—an extraordinary effort in extraordinary times, and I would like to thank Jamie Siegel, Matt Beck, and Matt Rubano for their help and virtual musicianship.
I consider this the Mike Errico Holiday Show for 2020. Two questions you probably have:
1) Why no livestream holiday show?
Good question. Answer: The idea of me sitting in a room and you sitting in another, maybe thousands of miles away, is “OK,” but it’s not the same. Trying to simulate what I love also reminds me of what’s not possible at this moment, and I figured, why give a simulation of one thing, when I can give a real version of something else? So. Tada. And if I think of a livestream show that relates to the medium itself, and isn’t just “good enough for people on distant couches,” I’m in, and I’m taking suggestions.
2) HOLIDAY OMENS?!? I LIVE MY LIFE ACCORDING TO THEIR TEACHINGS!11!!!
I know, I know. I do, too. And they spoke to me this year. They said:
HERE’S THE PLAN.
“YOU’RE NO SANTA” IS AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON BANDCAMP AS “NAME YOUR OWN PRICE.” THOSE WHO HEAR THE OMENS’ CALL SHOULD CONTRIBUTE ANY AMOUNT IN EXCESS OF SHIPPING (MIN. $7), AND INCLUDE THEIR SNAIL MAIL ADDRESS IN THE “NOTES” FIELD WHEN PURCHASING. THUS, THE OMEN CAN CONTINUE ITS JOURNEY AND DELIVER ITS SOLEMN MESSAGE.
Omens tend to speak in all caps. Not sure why. But anyway: I miss you guys, and hope you’re well, and hope you enjoy “You’re No Santa.” I think it’s a burner.
