Merry Christmas!  It’s once again time for The Blah Blah’s annual Christmas mix cd – Have a Blah Christmas.  Hope you like it.

Download or preview the MP3s individually, or get the whole thing (complete with cover art) in one massive zip file here.

Otherwise, I apologize but the songs aren’t edited to be in the correct order according to track number.  You’ll have to do that yourself.  I just ran out of time.

I thought this would make a great Christmas Eve post!  Todd Fadel of Agents of Future sent me an e-mail the other day with a compilation he made up with some of the best tracks from 1996’s It Never Snows on Christmas, an album from way back in 1996 of some of the best Portland, Oregon, bands at the time.

Why the name It Never Snows on Christmas?  Because, says Todd, it never has snowed on Christmas day in Portland, for as long as he can remember.

Here’s what Todd says about the mix: “The songs are fun.  Stereo Crush’s singer now leads a project called Boy Eats Drum Machine (which includes looped drums from Danny Seim of Menomena and Kevin Robinson of Viva Voce). Pep Squad is a band that was on Tooth and Nail for a couple of releases in 1997-1998.  My band, Sappo, was on Organic Records in 1997, and the All*Stars featured singers from local bands Yum Yum Children, Gifty, Brothers and Sisters of Righteousness, and Jimi Dorsey and the Lime Rickies.”

Click here for a zip file of Todd’s best-of compilation, or for the full album, go here.  You can listen on-line or to download the songs, just create a free account.

Important Note

These MP3s are here for sampling purposes and to help spread the news about some sweet bands you may not otherwise know about. Support the artists by buying their MP3s and CDs and attending their shows. If you're a musician and don't want your MP3s on here, let us know and we'll take them down. In the interests of promotion and not robbery, all MP3s are taken down after a week or two, so if you wanna hear stuff, either come around often or pay for songs.
