(JP: 'Now this next record I about to play you is either the best Christmas record or the worst Christmas record ever made. It comes from an LP, We Three Bings - Vital's Music New York Trash X Mas, and I do mean X Mas, and it features Rats Of Unusual Size, Lily Braindrop & The Yeastie Girlz, Lysdexica (NOTE: Peel was supposed to say Lysdexic), Reverb Mothers, well let's settle for that, Purple Geezus, Letch Petrol, Ed Gein's Car, Honeymoon Killers, George Tabb Experience, Gawk, Shaved Pigs, and Woo or W.O.O., which one it's supposed to be and you may recall, I can only just dimly recall myself, so you may not recall it at all, but the Chipmunks did a Christmas record, and this is kind a update of that by Purple Geezus, well see what you make of this, this is the right speed by the way')
(JP: 'An agreeable break I think from that Greg Lake record that gets trotted out time and time again every Christmas')
