Song of the Day: The Dumps – Pokey The Toxic Tannenbaum

Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. This week, we are featuring Christmas-themed songs selected by Sonic Reducer host Brian Foss.

Brian’s pick for today is “Pokey The Toxic Tannenbaum” by The Dumps from their 2015 self-released single.

The Dumps – Pokey The Toxic Tannenbaum (MP3)

Says Brian…

Discovering themselves in a dumpster behind the old Funhouse some time in the recent past, The Dumps have devoted themselves to the filth and frivolity that is the Seattle punk rock scene. One half The Stooges, one half The Ramones… and also one half The Three Stooges, The Dumps could be the worst thing you hear all year.

The Dumps performed an Anti-Chrismas Special last week, but they’ll be a the new Funhouse in Seattle on Saturday, January 2nd. Hear more music by The Dumps on their Facebook and Bandcamp pages.
