Krampus? Yeah, he definitely sounds like a pre-Christian god getting run down by the opposition. I was thinking of playing a pagan solstice song, but I think I’ll save it for the 21st. And I decided to use my better judgement on the heavy metal song I was thinking of playing after that.

So I decided to play an instrumental by a Canadian group instead.

Winter Solstice – The Tea Party

Yes, I know. There are no words to this whatsoever. It’s a rather nice piece, though. And, of course, when I think of a tea party, I always think of Alice in Wonderland.  This song is from their second album, and is actually a rerecording of the song from their first album. The band split up in 2006 due to creative differences.

The differences seem to have involved their singer / producer, Jeff Martin, pursuing a solo career and moving to Ireland, leaving the other two members, Jeff Burrows and Stuart Chatwood, as a band called Art Decay.
