Episode 67: 12/23/2018: The Second First Ever Half Machine Lip Moves Holiday Special

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with '#67' on it.

We started this episode, the second Half Machine Lip Moves holiday show, with some Christmas-themed industrial and EBM. Then we had a set of music inspired by Krampus, the Christmas Demon. That was followed by a doom-laden Christmas Mourning set. Then we had a mostly post-punk set themed around Winter Solstice, which was followed by another Winter Solstice-themed set of black metal and noise. The show’s last block had renditions of more somber traditional Christmas music, and we closed with a raucous bit of holiday music. We hope everyone listening has a great Christmas, Festivus, Kwanzaa, or a nice Tuesday if you celebrate none of those or something else.
