“Swallowing cum”?!? It is indeed a
Christmas, single. Check the track and the video, below.

The other day erstwhile Slits guitarist Viv Albertine unveiled
here “new annual alternative Christmas single”: it is  entitled, and quite sensibly, “It’s a
Christmas, Single”.


Viv Albertine – It’s A Christmas, Single by BAM!


It was recorded with US
no-wave duo, Talk Normal, pictured above with Albertine, who she met while they
were labelmates on Thurston Moore’s (Sonic Youth) label Ecstatic Peace. In the
song, Albertine weaves comments on society, conventional wisdom and her own
personal life with humorous musings on Christmas. She wrote the lyrics on the
tour bus while touring with The Damned this November. As soon as she arrived
back in London
she was off into the recording studio.


Says Albertine, “The single was made quick and rough, just how I like my
music… and my men.”


Albertine also has a new solo album
slated for release next spring. Merry Christmas, everyone!
