[pullquote quote="Fruitcakes get a bad rap, so we decided to give the ULTIMATE recipe." credit="Fred Schneider"]Nothing says “holidays” like a fruitcake. Whether it’s moist, stale, crumbly, or hard-as-a-rock, that seasonal culinary delight never fails to provide the pizazz in a holiday meal. Ok, maybe that’s giving fruitcake too much credit. But it is without a doubt a symbol of the season, and for that reason “Fruitcake” is a key track on the new holiday album Destination… Christmas from The Superions, a hilarious group out of Orlando, Florida which happens to feature Mr. Fred Schneider of The B-52s as frontman. Schneider stopped by the Street Date studio recently to discuss “Fruitcake” and other gems off this soon-to-be-classic holiday album.
It would be a crime to leave this page without experiencing the wonder of “Fruitcake” via this video The Superions shot and produced in and around their Orlando homes.
And another one that’s not to be missed – this is the video for “Santa’s Disco,” another instant classic from the Destination… Christmas album (there’s that darn fruitcake again!).
Here’s the full tracklist for Destination… Christmas:
1. Santa’s Disco
3. Chillin’ At Christmas
4. Teddy And Betty Yeti
5. Christmas Conga (Jungle Bells)
6. Jingle Those Bells
7. Under The Tree
