This somewhat wryly entertaining track from multi-talent Brian Cullman comes to us just in time for the holidays; it’s been released as an E.P. with three other tracks and you can definitely hear the humor coming through the lyrics.  As Cullman himself put it:

“So this is my revenge; my way out of no way out!  Three minutes of seasonal music without a sleigh bell or reindeer or sugar plum fairies dancing in your head.  It’s a song for that dark nightclub of the soul where Randy Newman, Sun Ra and Willie Dixon are the D.J.’s and no one really cares if you’re naughty or nice.”

You be the judge.  Is the “Zelig of rock & roll” telling the truth or is this said with a wink and a nudge?

“(I’m Just A New Year’s Adam Looking For A) New Year’s Eve” is out now.
