If you recently bought America's top pop punkers' 'Mmhmm' you will have got this as a free bonus CD. Apart from having the most amusing title ever conceived for a Christmas project, what do you get? Well, just what you'd expect. A punktastic versions of "Angels We Have Heard On High", a fun modification of a creaking old standard "Santa Clause Is Thumbin' To Town" and best of all, a hilarious version of "12 Days Of Christmas". But it doesn't stop there. There's also a truly manic version of Handel's "The Hallelujah Chorus" and if Matthew Thiessen's run through of "Silent Night/Away In A Manger" is dull, with not a guitar in earshot, this is still an above average Yuletide album likely to get airplay in the Christmases ahead.
