A Christmas Message From PERCY December 22, 2020

I wasn’t sure whether this Christmas message idea would work or not, but I think it has. This is the eighth one and it is now the turn of West Yorkshire Superheroes, PERCY! Earlier this year the band released the rather fabulous ‘Seaside Donkeys’ album and the vinyl release is something special. You can download it from their BandCamp site and from the same place you can still avail yourself of one of the remaining vinyl albums too. Just click here, you won’t regret it! Well worth the investment, this is a classic album. Given that we haven’t seen the last of Brexshit, the vile gift that keeps on giving, PERCY and their songs will be very relevant for many, many years yet! Now enjoy the PERCY Christmas message from singer guitarist Colin!

I am overwhelmed by the spirit, kindness and effort shown by so many bands who have given us a Christmas message here at With Just A Hint Of Mayhem. This one is from a great British band, the Suncharms. All being well they hope to brighten up 2021 with their debut album. Based on what we have heard from them so far I am sure it will be bloody good! Get yourself some rather excellent Suncharms tracks over on their BandCamp page, just click here. There is also a rather decent looking T-Shirt on the merch page too, click here for that. The band also contributed a fab track to ‘Comfort and Joy – A Shiny Happy Christmas Compilation’, click here to download the album, it’s a corker!

A Christmas Message From The Receivers December 21, 2020


I am really enjoying the numerous Christmas messages that some of our favourite bands have put together for our readers. This one is from yet another great band from York, yes we are a hot bed of musical talent up here 🙂

Thanks to social distancing it is singer and guitarist Nick who is giving the message on behalf of the band, but the sentiments are shared by all the other Receivers. This band have released a couple of awesome tracks this year. You can check them out below the Christmas message. While you do click here and buy yourself some great vinyl and T-Shirt Receivers merch. Hot off the press the boys have secured a support slot with The Royston Club at the Victoria Vaults in January, click here to get yourself a ticket, this will be a sell out!

A Christmas Message From The Spit Sisters December 20, 2020

Dear constant readers, less frequent viewers and newbies we have another delightful Christmas message for you. This time it is the turn of those angry, satanic queers from London, the Spit Sisters. After reviewing their latest single, “Sylvia” back in October I am definitely a fan. Check out the excellent video for “Sylvia” below too. Thanks to Covid driven social distancing it is Jaz giving a great message on behalf of her and the band. She even throws in a few lines from “Homo Christmas” which I believe was a Pansy Division song. I might be an old, white, straight bloke, but I know stuff like that!

Anyway while you are viewing the Chrimbo message from this marvellous band check them out on BandCamp. You can buy “Sylvia” and “Weak” by clicking here. Also if you are stuck on what to do for those last minute Christmas presents, why not buy a fabulous Spit Sisters logo patch, they look rather excellent (check out the picture above), just click here and buy one for your Gran or the Vicar!

A Christmas Message From The Dead Zoo December 19, 2020

Only six more sleeps until the bearded weirdo drops down your chimney, are you excited? I think I am. So excited in fact that I am sending you another great Christmas message from another fabulous band that we love here at With Just A Hint Of Mayhem; The Dead Zoo. We have featured them before, click here to read our review of their rather splendiferous single “Mother”. I have had a sneak preview of a couple of tracks the band plan to release in 2021 and they are both incredible, so incredible that they will put a a very special shine on the new year, especially after the shitstorm that 2020 has been. The Dead Zoo Christmas message is below.

Here is what the band have to say to you 🙂 “We had a really promising start with four great live shows in winter 2019 and 2020 before Covid and we’re looking forward to building momentum again in 2021 with the release of our next single in the spring. Our debut “Mother”, released in the summer, did really well and we raised a lot of funds for #saveourvenues 

We’re really grateful for the grass roots blogs and music fans who supported us in the early days and we hope we can all go forward together, no matter what.”

Somrata, Kaoru, Gabby & Jon (collectively known as the Dead Zoo) xx
