The Little St. Nick Lowe, or (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Boughs of Holly?

ImageMy interest in Christmas music could not be described as casual, and I’ve long admired the songwriting of Nick Lowe, the onetime Jesus of Cool.

So his first — and probably last, but who can say? — holiday album, Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection for All the Family, is pitched squarely at me. I talked to him about it for Sunday’s Washington Post.

Been a while since my byline showed up there. Nice to be back.
