Deck The Halls - Johnny "Bowtie" Barstow
"Every now and then an artist emerges whose vision is so unique that it creates an entirely new musical paradigm.
Stretching the realm of technique by introducing harmonic or rhythmic contexts far removed from the norm,
they're often unappreciated in their time, but the passage of years can ultimately bring recognition for their genius.
Ornette Coleman was one such artist. Now we have singer Johnny "Bowtie Barstow."
- John Kelman, All About Jazz
I Farted On Santa's Lap - The Little Stinkers
"Uncovering a great weird Christmas song is like finding a
redback nestling in Nanna’s fruit cake.
It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Over the years, there’s been some great novelty Christmas songs...
In 1999, The Little Stinkers, fronted by seven-year-old Mary Beltrami,
fanned the winds of Xmas with I Farted On Santa’s Lap!"

I Wanna Be Your Santa Claus - Johnny Pierre
"Johnny Pierre has been making the Long Island Blues Rock scene for some 25 years.
He lived for a long while in New Orleans, so he picked all that music up.
His gravely vocals can remind you of Tom Waits on the slower stuff
and he can bring on Howlin' Wolf on the stuff that cooks."
