Sympathy for the Record Industry put out several compilations that celebrated the sleazy side of Jesus' birthday. Then Flying Bomb Records took it another step and released a small collection of bands who reflect on the trash aspect of rock & roll while being recorded as lo-fi as possible. And they all pull it off well. The Dirtys absolutely rule "Surprise Package" with their high energy and barfly lifestyle, while Bantam Rooster has Jim Diamond on the organ to back up the guitar/drum two-piece on the raw "Let's Fuck for Christmas." The Wildbunch offer an instrumental that could have been taken off of a Munsters Christmas special.
