ANGRY SNOWMANS: Self-titled: CD

It’s weird getting a Christmas CD in June and even more odd is me listening to one. A fun collective from Victoria, BC who have taken the model that Manic Hispanic have made popular and bring you elf-core. They take many OC and punk classics and put on the X-mas and elf flavor on top. Taking the Misfits “Last Caress” and making it into “Last Christmas” or converting the Adolescents classics “Kids of the Black Hole” and “Amoeba” into “Elves of the North Pole” and “Hannukah.” Definitely a keeper and that one record you go to when making X-mas mix tapes for you friends as gifts. I wonder if they only play the last three months of the year?
