Song of the Day: The Woggles - Santa is Coming (Ho, Ho, Ho)

Song of the Day, Sonic Reducer

KEXP

Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. This week, we are featuring Christmas-themed songs selected by Brian Foss, host of Sonic Reducer, KEXP's punk show. Brian has been doing a punk rock Christmas special every year since 2004, and has been a Christmas day on air DJ since 2012. No standards are played, only original songs, most with a humorous bent.

Brian's pick for today is "Santa is Coming (Ho, Ho, Ho)" by The Woggles, from a 2012 single on Wicked Cool Records.

The Woggles - Santa is Coming (Ho, Ho, Ho) (MP3)Says Brian...

My 1st Woggles show was seeing them open for Guitar Wolf at the Breakroom in 1999 - front-man Manfred Jones did not stop dancing the whole set. For over two decades, the Atlanta based garage band have put out many fine releases, including a few holiday themed tracks. While my usual taste is on the more anti-Xmas songs spectrum, "Santas Coming" is so joyful it's just a pleasure to these ears.

Find out more about The Woggles on their website and Facebook page. After all these years, they're still kicking and touring. Hopefully, they come by a town near you. Until then, watch the official video for "Santa is Coming (Ho, Ho, Ho)":
