Holiday Split 7" [RSD Black Friday 2023]

More Info:

Lenny Kaye's place in music history is firmly secured as guitarist and founding member of the Patti Smith Group. His seminal anthology of ‘60s garage rock, Nuggets, has long been regarded as defining a genre. In his new book Lighting Strikes, he charts the story of rock ‘n’ roll, a story he knows well, as he continues to inspire audiences and readers alike. Following his songwriter muse, he's now committed an intimate new holiday tune to wax on his favorite format: the 7" vinyl record.

He's teamed up with Cedar Sparks, the duo of Tim Carbone (Railroad Earth) and Lou Rogai (Lewis & Clarke) to record and produce a trove of new songs, beginning with “Santa’s Knee”. Their own "Gathering Song" makes for the perfect B-side companion, inspired by seasonal depression, the commodification of Christmas, and the classic 1946 holiday film It's A Wonderful Life.
