They tell me we're now just a few days away from some widely-celebrated winter festival. And to get us in the mood for enjoying such an occasion, the good people at Plastic Punk Records have made a punk rock advent calendar which reveals a punk version of a Christmas song each day up until the 25th of December. Woo and, indeed, hoo!
These follow the carol-singing principles of small children everywhere: the point is not to sing the songs as sweetly and tunefully as possible, but rather to bellow every last word louder than the person standing next to you! In my eyes that makes them all the more joyful and the whole thing fills me with cheer and goodwill towards my fellow man.
OI! Merry Christmas, you 'orrible little lot!
