Yet more Alternative Xmas shenanigans courtesy of DJ Po & Piers 666

Further to last week’s Yule song special comes another slice of festive frivolity. This time courtesy of the DJ Po and Piers Sixx show on Nightbreed

Po and Piers present two whole hours of Alternative and Gothic Christmas songs from the likes of London After Midnight, The Cult, Ankst, UK Subs and even… The Muppets. According to Po:

“We kinda lost the plot near the end as there was far to many mince pies, Sherry and Brandy on the go.”

The show will make it’s network debut on on Saturday the 11th of December at 8am. So all of those who won’t be able to venture out to London’s famous Goth club Slimelight for Dark Souls can still curl up on the sofa, tune the wireless [broadband] in to, crack open the Sherry and stuff your face with mince pies along with Po and Piers as they kick off Dark Souls day on the station.
If you are off to Dark Souls though, the show will be repeated on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day at 8am and 1.30am along with the other Dark Souls specials.

I heartily recommend making the time to catch this show. Having previewed it, I can honestly say there are plenty of cracking tunes here (that you’ll need to buy from your nearest download webshop) all tied together with the banter of Po and Piers which gradually gets more… merry… as the show goes on. Particular highlights include:

‘Frosty the Snow Man’ by The Cocteau Twins,
‘Carol of the Bells’ by Ankst,
‘Good King Wenceslas’ by Rhombus,
‘Il Est De Le Divin Enfant’ by Siouxsie and the Banshees,
‘Frater Ave Atque Vale’ by Faith and the Muse,
‘Merry Christmas Every Body’ by Metal Gurus (The Mission).

You can only hear DJ Po & Piers 666’s Xmas special on
