Rhube’s Christmas Music for the Apocalypse, No. 10: Old Men’s Brains (A Zombie Christmas)

Just ten days until Christmas and it’s time for my favourite apocalypse Christmas song: Art Elliot’s haunting ‘A Post Apocalyptic Christams’. The parodies and novelty songs are great, but I think this song is simply beautiful, really hitting a chord … Continue reading
