We, the Statics, believe that Christmas is about everyone coming together to spend time with the people they love. To celebrate the holiday, we crammed a bunch of people (Jews?) in a room and recorded this raucous mess of a Christmas song. Singing together, we recalled the very first Christmas, when the three "candy kings" crammed a bunch of people in a mangier and recorded Jesus being born. We did our best to emulate this sound.
This song features big Static Fan-ima Micharri Charrise on gang vocals, along with horn-playing regular Sam Ebb. We also got a sweet guitar solo from non-guitar-player Aletta Brady on the build-up and chant.
We hope you enjoy our attempt to have some holiday fun. Happy Xmas!
The Japanese are a serious band that plays serious music about serious things. Thus, we believe that Christmas, like all other things, is a serious matter. So, unlike our "peers" in Static Stamina, who have chosen to defecate on the holiest of consumer holidays with their gang vocals and communal atmosphere, we in The Japanese have decided to launch an all out Hanukkah offensive, boldly striking back at our menorah-waving oppressors. Like our brothers Creed and Alter Bridge before us, we have staked our claim as legitimate musicians, taking back the holiday season with arms wide open. With that we give you our Christmas gift, an impassioned and prophetic take on a Christmas classic, "The Dreidel Song."
