ADVENT CALENDAR: Dec 6th - Eels - Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas

ADVENT CALENDAR: Dec 6th - Eels - Everything's Gonna Be Cool This ChristmasA track I first purchased about 12 years ago, on the B side to the Eels single 'Cancer For The Cure'. 

The song was also featured on a compilation called 'It's A Cool Cool Christmas'. Released on Jeepster Records in 2000 and backed by XFM, all of the proceeds from sales of It's a Cool, Cool Christmas went to The Big Issue. 

It's an assortment of originals and reworkings of Christmas classics recorded by an all-star line up including Jeepster's own Belle and Sebastian, plus Calexico, Teenage Fanclub, Eels, The Dandy Warhols, Snow Patrol, The Flaming Lips, Saint Etienne, Low and Grandaddy.

'Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas' stands out for its upbeat approach, E announcing the arrival of the middle eight with the immortal line, "Baby Jesus: born to rock". 

The RW/FF Advent Calendar is proud to support The Trussell Trust, helping feed those in need this Christmas. Also, for every 'retweet' @rwffmusic gets on Twitter this month, 2p will go to the cause. You can also give food to your local foodbank (find yours HERE) and donate money to the cause HERE
