Too Many Santa’s – video release Maxwell / Miranda / Parsley

Brooklyn Vegan has shared the video for “Too Many Santas”, the newest single from Maxwell / Miranda / Parsley’s recently released holiday album entitled ‘Catskill Christmas’. The trio previous released the single for “Going To Get The Tree” on Brooklyn Vegan as well as the video on CLRVYNT. The album is out now via Dangerbird Records.

Thinking  it  a  wise  investment  of  time,  our  three  kings  spent  a  few  days  one  summer recording  a  Christmas  EP.  They  delighted  in  jingle  bells  and  BBQ,  while  taking  shelter from  the usual  dark  and  complicated  matter from  which their  songs usually  spring,  and frolicked   in   baubles,   holiday   weight   gain   and   the   loveliest   lie   ever   told.   This unsurprisingly became a summer tradition of theirs, and three years later, an album was born in a puff of smoke, under the brightest of stars.

‘Twas the end of the summer
and soon to be fall
When three tipsy minstrels
did hear a faint call

Whistling o’er mountain
and through the dark wood

A whisper of winter
Done blew through the ‘hood

They were several pints low
And searching for merry

Each knee deep in debt
a mortgage to carry

They tried to be cheery
despite the foreboding

But it’s hard for a minstrel
(‘cuz illegal downloading)

Now Miranda was humming
and clearing the dishes

Whilst Parsley was rolling
and rhyming up wishes

Good Maxwell sat fishing
through a wee bowl of candy

When “Screw it!” he chimed
and uncorked the brandy…

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
