BAH & THE HUMBUGS: BIGGER THAN SANTA
Featuring Humbugs songs performed by the following bands:
Here Comes Skunky Claus
Flaming Snowballs is a band on a mission from Claus. As founding member Xero Grav tells the story, several years ago he wrote a letter to Santa Claus asking for an electric guitar for Christmas. He knew it was a big and probably unrealistic Christmas wish, and he didn't really expect anything to come of it.
Well, to his great surprise, Xero got a letter back from Santa Claus three weeks later. This time, Santa was the one asking Xero for a favor. The Jolly Old Elf asked the young lad to form a band that would combine the sunny sound of ska with the snowy spirit of the Christmas season, thereby bringing an entirely new kind of joy to the world. At the time, Xero didn't know that combining those two completely different styles was considered a musical impossibility. He just said yes.
Soon Christmas arrived, and so did a shiny new guitar. Xero learned to play that guitar, and though it took a few years, he kept his promise to Santa Claus. Now his band, Flaming Snowballs, is burning up the Christmas charts with their ska-inflected cover of a song by Bah & the Humbugs "Here Comes Skunky Claus."
