Green "Egg Nog"
One of the most sought-after items in my seasonal crate. I had a file of the song for a couple years, and played it on my KEXP Christmas show in 2007 and 2008 to great response, but have been reluctant to blog about it until I actually owned a physical copy. (I know, I know, I'm old-fashioned.)
This is a promo 45 issued by Elektra in 1992, right around the time the first Luna album came out, when they were briefly being billed as Luna² (see also: London Suede, The English Beat, UK Squeeze). The track's never been released anywhere else, but when I campaign Rhino to let me assemble a digital new wave/alt-rock Christmas album later this year, this is right at the top of my wish list (along with Danielle Dax's "Blue Christmas").
