ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Let’s face it: come December there’s just no escaping Holiday music. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah, or more esoteric celebrations, the music is relentless, and most of it really sucks. Enter The Yule Logs, the World’s Greatest Christmas and Hanukkah Rock ‘n Roll Band.

The Yule Logs revel in the sounds of British Invasion, Motown, and ‘60s California beach blanket pop. With lush four-part harmonies and jangling electric 12-string guitars, The Yule Logs come correct with a blend of original holiday tunes, tastefully reworked holiday standards and obscure gems from Christmas Past.

Whether playing community centers, elementary schools or dive bars, The Yule Logs’ holiday enthusiasm is pandemic, appealing to college students, grandmas and barflies alike.

“We were sick of our parents absolutely hating our bands,” explains lead singer Marty Parker. “We wanted to be in a band that our grandparents, as well as our friends, would actually want to listen to.”

Formed in the University town of Chico, California – a hamlet best known for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Playboy’s annual Top-10 Party schools list – the boys have been topping Christmas trees and lighting the Menorah of rock since 2005.
The Yule Logs are now following the success of their independently released self-titled debut with a second offering: Walked With A Reindeer. Here nativity scenes are vandalized to a Beach Boys soundtrack (“Christmas Lights”), “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” is re-imagined as a cautionary tale that would make Nick Cave proud, and the Pope and Frosty the Snowman join Mary and Joseph to celebrate “Baby Jesus’ First Christmas.”

With snowy mistletoe glee already beginning to fall, The Yule Logs have returned volley in 2010 and present to you their first single, “North Pole 45789.” Derived from The Marvelettes’ 1961 hit “Beachwood 4-5789,” The Logs have recapture that same soulful magic with a steady backbeat and the hopes of reaching Santa via rotary telephone.

Walked With A Reindeer is chock-full of the pop punch/tongue-in-cheek attitude that has made The Yule Logs an eggnog-chugging holiday free-for-all. Fans still dancing the “Hanukkah Mambo” and humming “Christmas Is Lonely When You’re A Jew” will be fast to add these 12 smokin’ hot cuts to their holiday lexicon.

Remember: Santa Claus knows all of the bad things you’ve done this last year. But make no mistake, you’ll be taken right off the “Naughty List” once you try The Yule Logs Walked With A Reindeer on for size.
