Had enough of schmaltzy greetings cards? Heard Wizard’s cries of “IT’S CHRIIIISTMAS!” so many times it makes you want to poke your loved ones eyes out with something gold, glittery and sharp? Well fret not, ye that is black of heart, for we have two solutions to make the festive season more bearable.
Snowflakes and sledges are all well and good, but if you’d rather send your mother a card that is trvly frostbitten this year then head over to http://www.etsy.com/shop/cozmiclady for a selection of ways to say you really hate her. Aww!
Misantrof Antirecords celebrate the holidays by offering a 15 track compilation for free download, entitled “Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas Volume III.”
Vrangsinn, founder of the label explains; “Christmas has now lost whatever religious significance it had to all but a small handful of people, and it has become an orgy of exploitation where everyone is encouraged to spend money they probably don’t have. We just want to give everyone something for free, and hopefully at the same time make people sit back and realise that there are ways to have fun that do not require vast sums of money. All the bands featured have allowed us to use their music for free, even paying their own studio costs – it’s a 55 minutes reality check on Christmas, from 15 different artists, and made for pure enjoyment and cost-free self-indulgence”.
