Loving the Porest album Modern Journal Of Popular Savagery atm, I heard it via Vicki People Like Us and her WFMU podcasts. It’s very subversive pop/electronica, deeply funny and funny deep. I grimly LOL’d at this bit of Soapbox Cutter,…

It’s been 5 years since the original Bah Humbug (the event and the CD – still up!) hit the world…in fact Kirk has repeatedly told me he plays the CD every year…so I thought in the sake of giving him another CD to play (it must be the only one he has) I’d create BAH HUMBUG II! *dramatic music*

Following the first it’s another dose of antidote to the usual sickly cheesy Xmas tunes we hear year after year…so here’s a journey into the stranger side of Xmas tunes, the extremely rude (yes this is NSFW and not for children, or anyone really), the perverted, the strange, the outsider, the silly, the misfires, mashups, the Xmas protest songs and parodies – strange, silly, bizarre and terrible – it’s all here but actually hypnotically and strangely quite good. And hopefully it’ll spread some real Scroogemas Cheer to you all! Should fit onto a 80 minute CD, and includes printable artwork in the zip.

Thanks and cheers goes to these paragons of Xmess strangeness who either were included here or nearly were – consider buying/checking them out if you like what you hear here (do you?):

I’ve been meaning to do a new Dark Electro / Disco Noir mix since I did the last one 3 years ago (was it really that long?).

As I’ve gotten more into dubstep, psych garage and surf oddities this is also now reflected in this late edition of Disco Noir 2 – it also has rock, dubstep, doowop, dnb, mashups (including a few from the excellent new Texas Chainsaw Mashacre album), and of course dark and cheesy disco and electro. Big love and thanks goes to them and also Mr Fab via WFMU 365 Days Project for his Disco Sickness compilation which donated a few horrible disco tracks from hell….and I’m guessing quite a few of the spoken word bits are from either of them too!

So I hope you enjoy this dark journey under the light of the moon, with the cry of the wolf, cat, cackling witch and, err, weird synthetic comic ghost noise. oooOOOoOOOOoo! And watch out for scary background noises BEHIND YOU – they creeped into the mix when I wasn’t looking.
