Best off the beaten bath x-mas music.....

Any thoughts on "underground" x-mas music?
Bob Rivers - Twisted Christmas

It seems to get the mood just right!
Not exactly underground but at this point certainly off the beaten path if only because it's out of print....
Jon Anderson (of YES, not the country singer)
"3 Ships" 1985, out of print but can be found if you look.

Merry X-mas to all
I remain,
Trans-Siberian Orchestra ( Maybe not underground, but definently a twist on the norm.
Low-Christmas EP
My two favorite remain John Prine and Leon Redbone. After you hear Redbone do White Christmas, Bing sounds hyper. His rendition of Christmas Island is great too. Prine not only sings, but tells great stories.
Happy Holiday's!!! HO! HO! HO!
The Roches....
Venom: "Black Christmas" -only one song, but I play it every year on Christmas Eve to celebrate the season!

also, there's a great Xmas collection from Esquivel (50's lounge orchestra hero) if you're a fan of "zoo-zoo" lyrics and early synths like the annoyovox and the irritatophone.
Merry Axeman has Steve Vai, Jeff Beck, Eirc Johnson, Brian Setzer, etc. Great CD.
jorma has a christmas album out
