THE WESTERN CARAVAN FEATURING THIRSTY DAVE HANSEN
a tongue-in-cheek, festive rock banger that deserves to be heard on everyone’s turntable.
this is the debut release from ‘Stolen Toy’: a new independent record company, dedicated to releasing limited edition collectors recordings & chart smashes. as singer - dave Hansen - relates: “I was invited to sing a Christmas song with the band Beat Rodeo in 1995. I sat in with them regularly, & they knew ‘Psycho’ (The Leon Payne-penned murder ballad). I got the idea at the last minute & wrote the lyrics in the back of the cab in the hour it took to get across town to the venue. When I was called up on stage, I sang ‘Blue Christmas’, then I called ‘Psycho’. They played… No one knew what was coming… & the crowd went crazy”. “Cooler than most ice-boxes… it doesn’t get much better” - Bob Dylan. “Possibly the third best Christmas record” - Shane MacGowan “Somebody should release that, it rocks!” - Bruce Springsteen.
