New 2008 indie punk-ass xmas mix is up!

It’s back! My (in)famous indie punk-ass Christmas mix for 2008. This is the 3rd year running and last year’s mix nearly blew out a year’s worth of bandwidth allocation, but here we go again. Because sometimes ordinary Christmas Carols just won’t do.

This year’s mix is an update from last year with some of your old favourites and a couple new 2008 tracks mixed in. First of the additions we have the new Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Christmas song as well as a nice Barenaked Ladies version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. But then if the BNL isn’t quite high enough on your punk-ass o’meter I’ve balanced that off with Oh Come All Ye Faithful by … wait for it … Twisted Sister — OH GOD YES.

Grab the big giant zip file (93MB) here, download, import the included playlist file to itunes (or whatever your music program) to get all the songs in the right order and burn to CD and or listen away. Should *just* fit on an 80min CDR.


UPDATE: 7am Dec 22. Well that didn’t take long, bandwidth exceeded on server #1, give me an hour or two to set up some more bandwidth. BTW. Anyone else got a mirror they would like to lend for a few days?

UPDATE2: 2:14pm Dec 22 Alright you rapacious revelers found a new mirror for the file. go at it.
Meanwhile tonight’s project: learn how to make and host a torrent (any tips?)

UPDATE3: 9:35am Dec23 That twisted sister rendition? The internets have just informed me that there is a video… 🙂 🙂
