green river / U-men
away in a manger / blue christmas
the unholy marriage of these two irreverent bands makes for the most glorious anti-christmas tunes we’ll hear this year.
Green River’s sick rendition of the classic Christmas tune “Away in a Manger,” was originally released on the long out of print C/Z Records compilation entitled ‘Another Pyrrhic Victory: The Only Compilation of Dead Seattle God Bands’. U-Men’s slurring, lurching, belly crawling, piss-take on “Blue Christmas” was originally available on the Christmas ‘84 cassette compilation that very few will remember having ever been in print. Two ugly orphans, brought together to live as one grinning, writhing glump of career-capping, Christmas gak! Happy birthday, baby Jesus!
