artworkThis odd little 10 inch vinyl lp contains 3 instro yule-tides. Nothing very interesting, but if you're a completist of like these bands, then it might be your cup of tea.

Track by Track Review


Frosty The Snowman dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Man or Astro-Man? give us a surfed up instro version of "Frosty The Snowman" in their usual prolific style. The "Tequila" riff runs underneath while the twang drives up front. The sample at the beginning is funny, but...

Christmastime Is Time For Les Chickun
Garage Trash (Instrumental)

This is utterly horrible. Not just very crappy sound, but "Christmastime Is Time For Les Chickun" is without any point. It's just trash!

Little Drummer Boy dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

The Bomboras provide a holiday lift in their normal soundscape. Flying glissandos and splashy lead guitar. No organ, just the trio, and while it's pretty lo-fi, it's a great performance.
