The idea of doing a holiday song kicked around between Dr. Cranquis, Rob and Mark back in October 2012. We’d worked on music together before, but we thought it would be fun to work on a song of 12 Days of Non-Denominational, Multi-Cultural, All-Inclusive, Non-Judgmental Tumblr Winter Holiday Season Enjoyment. We opened it up to Tumblr to help us write some medically themed the lyrics for a song set to the general music of The Twelve Days of Christmas. As we waited for submissions to come in, the two of us in the The Really Good Post
Roast thought we’d do an original song. Then maybe another. Somewhere along the line, things ramped up to an EP., including The Twelve Days of Cranqmas. Sometimes things just get out of hand, in the nicest way.
In the spirit of the season, this EP our gift to you.
