Here is the digital re-issue of Xmas Lights' first ever recording with producer John Mitchell of Outhouse Studios, Reading.
"The opening track on this demo starts with a spoken word about the enron collapse then slides into an incredibly long, virtually instrumental piece. This is the single most self-serving, pretentious piece of music since emmerson lake & palmer graced a stage (if you dont know who these are ask your dad). If attitude and self belief plays a part in getting signed these guys are well on their way. the rest of the album is mercifully better, a cross between g.g.allin on a good day and any generic metal band. It makes my head hurt trying to describe the sound these guys capture, starve, tease and torture before letting it loose like a wild animal onto the crowd. Youve got to hear it to understand, but as weve got no contact details and they have no site this could be difficult. So check em live and please email me and give me your verdict of their sound because i sure as hell cant word it"
