Green River’s forthcoming reissues of Dry as a Bone & Rehab Doll, on Sub Pop, will include everything recorded during the eras of those two records except for their sick & unholy rendition of the classic Christmas tune “Away in a Manger,” which was deemed to be an awkward fit in the running order of either album. U-Men’s slurring, lurching, belly crawling, piss take on “Blue Christmas” was similarly left off of their comprehensive, career spanning collection, released by Sub Pop in 2017. Two ugly orphans, brought together to live as one grinning, writhing glump of career-capping, Christmas gak! Happy birthday baby Jesus!
