The Man In The Santa Suit – Fountains of Wayne

CD Cover: I Want An Alien For ChristmasFountains of Wayne were formed in 1995 by bassist Adam Schlesinger and guitarist Chris Collingwood. The band chose their name after a lawn ornament store in Wayne, New Jersey. After releasing their self-titled debut album in 1996, the band toured the world extensively, playing alongside bands such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Sloan and The Lemonheads. However, by 1999 they had parted ways with their record label, and band members scattered to work on other projects.

Re-united in 2003, they recorded their best known track, “Stacey’s Mom”, which went on to earn a Gold record (single) and led to the band being nominated for two Grammys; Best New Artist and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Stacy’s Mom”.

“The Man In The Santa Suit” is taken from the 1997 CD Single “I Want an Alien for Christmas”
