Death May Be Your Santa Claus. Overview (current section).

Among the many obscure British prog rock albums of the early '70s, Second Hand's Death May Be Your Santa Claus has to be one of the strangest, though not necessarily one of the best. While it's the kind of record likely to fire up genre enthusiasts, it's equally likely to inspire scorn from more general rock listeners unlikely to take a shine to its over the top frivolous absurdity. A bunch of more celebrated peers are incongruously echoed throughout the program: the snickering not-quite-pop avant rock arrangements and song constructions of Frank Zappa, the operatic shriek of Arthur Brown, even the harmonies of ive-era Pretty Things. The percolating organ is probably the most impressive element, but the songs often seem to have no particular point other than to be as simultaneously surreal and complex as can be, usually with a fairly dark aura.
