Christmas Present: The Superions’ ‘Fruitcake’


Earlier this month I featured a new solo song by Kate Pierson; today Christmas Present looks to a recent track led by another B-52s member, Fred Schneider, and his side project The Superions.

Whereas Pierson’s song evoked the B-52s because her vocals and stylings are so singular that they carry through both, and the song falls in the same vibe as “Deadbeat Club” or “Roam,” Schneider’s “Fruitcake” clearly carries the irreverent humor and mid-tempo dance vibe that was preceded by “Rock Lobster.” The video, of course, is equally bizarre, but it probably should be when talking about an ode to fruitcake.
