Yesterday’s Advent Calendar window brought a punky treat from Cheshire post-hardore outift Salt The Snail and their track ‘Matador Print’ (get your free download here) and we’re keeping the volume turned up to maximum today with an alternative Christmas song from another of our favourite noise merchants today.
As always, the tracks are completely free to download and there’s no need to sign up to any mailing lists to access the songs (though if you’d like to you can join ours here), but we’d love you to make a donation to the wonderful charity Help Musicians, who offer health and welfare support to musicians at all stages of their lives.
Let’s find out who’s bringing today’s tunes.
Providing the sort of unhinged swamp rock ‘n’ roll Christmas song that only they could feasibly have created, London garage punk quartet Dead Horse serve up today’s free calendar download, ‘Eating The Reindeer’. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
After re-emerging from lockdown with an insatiable determination and untampered zeal Dead Horse have rarely been far from the stage testing the waters with new members, instruments and material.
A follow up release to the debut ‘Dead Horse I‘ EP will be released in early 2022, and this time will they be able to hit the road for gigs across the country in support?
To get a taste of things to come Dead Horse have recorded this Christmas banger for Joyzine which was improvised live and recorded on an old cassette 4 track.
You can next catch Dead Horse live on February 4th at The New Cross Inn supporting garage legends King Salami and The Cumberland Three (tickets here).
