A Christmas Spanking (Bloodshot) Mostly recorded live at last year's Houston and Austin Xmas shows, this eclectic Spanking offers a spirited "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" here, a jazzy, possibly off-key "Baby It's Cold Outside" there, and a damn near lo-fi "Linus and Lucy" on the other side of the snowbank. Wammo's original, "12.25.61," an ode to the nuisance of being born on Christmas day, and closer "Far Away Christmas Blues" gathers most of the ex-Spankers still speaking to the current members.
