This is cool. You get a red vinyl disc in a green disco bag or a green vinyl disc in a red disco bag. Either way you're set up for one of the most Christmassy things in stoner rock history. These two tracks appeared on a cassette many moons ago but that was only given to friends and family so this is the first time they've become commercially available. I heard a bit of this down the phone about six months ago (don't ask...) and I thought it sounded ace. The Shjips tackle two classic Xmas tunes: 'Auld Lang Syne' and 'Oh Tannenbaum'. If you're a fan of the Wooden Shjips and you you're familiar with the two songs they're covering then you pretty much already know what they're gonna sound like. The Shjips don't veer from their stonery cyclical fuzzy sound. You could argue that if you've heard one record by 'em you've heard 'em all. But when they get in to that groove they do it so well. I don't really like Christmas songs as a rule (the only ones I like are by Greg Lake, Low and the South Park Xmas album). I can add this to the list as their version of 'Oh Tannenbaum' is pretty awesome! Lots of jingly bells and you get a locked groove of them at the end so it can be Christmas all the time potentially! I don't know why I'm so excited about this as I fucking hate Christmas but there you go. 400 for the UK, 1000 for the world. You do the maths, I'm too busy listening to a locked groove of bells.

So now we know what Santas little helpers listen to when they are stoned!
