We really are so close to Chrimbo now, four more sleeps. While the UK is mostly locked down and Kent becomes a lorry park even before Brexit take your mind off all of the shit in the world by taking a listen to the next tune in our 12 Days Of Mostly Punky Christmas. After a band that took their name from a New Found Glory lyric yesterday, today I thought you might like New Found Glory themselves with the jaunty pop punk of “Ex-Miss”. New Found Glory formed in Florida in 1997, yes they really have been around that long!

Day 8 of the With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series is here, which has been your favourite track so far? After yesterday’s announcement by our laughing stock Prime Minister we really need music! Todays choice is from a band who I have seen at UK festivals quite a few times. They are from Maryland, USA and they took their name from the lyrics “Head On Collision” by New Found Glory. Ladies and Gentlepunks I give you ALL Time Low with what ought to be a Chrimbo classic, “Merry Christmas, Kiss My Ass”. A great fun video too!

The 12 Days Of, Mostly, Punky Christmas – Day 7 December 19, 2020


Day 7 of the With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series I hope you’re enjoying it so far. What plans do you have for a socially distanced Chrimbo? Todays choice might upset some punk purists, but frankly I don’t give a shit! This thrown together band includes 50% of the Sex Pistols (Cook and Jones) plus Phil Lynott and Scott Gorham of Thin Lizzy. Lynott had a great punk attitude and he associated with many punk luminaries. They were originally called the Greedy Bastards but for this release they were the Greedies. Put on your Christmas trousers and strut your stuff to “A Merry Jingle”.

Day 6 of the With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series and we are halfway through. This is a funky punk outing from the everlasting Toy Dolls. They have been around forever haven’t they? While “Credit Crunch Christmas” came out quite a few years ago, but it is sadly very topical and pertinent in this very, very strange year!

Probably quite a topical picture for 2020 I reckon!

Day 5 of the With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series and we are getting close to halfway. All my Christmas shopping is done, how about you? None of it is wrapped yet though 🙂 Today’s tune is a great slab of pop punk from MxPx, all the way from Bremerton, Washington in the USA. Time for “Christmas Night Of The Living Dead”!

Day 4 of the With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series. Yuletide is so close now I can almost smell the Turkey and the sprouts and of course the nut roast if you’re veggie! Todays offering is a 1977 track by a band called the Ravers, who I know next to nothing about, with a song called “Punk Rock Christmas”. Apparently a lot of people thought this sounded like the Sex Pistols all those years ago, personally I don’t see it, but a fun tune nonetheless!

The 12 Days Of, Mostly, Punky Christmas – Day 3 December 15, 2020


Another day closer to the annual visit from the bearded weirdy in red and With Just A Hint Of Mayhem continues with a, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series up until Christmas Eve to take your mind off Covid, Brexshit and anything else that is vexing you! Day 3 brings you Set It Off who formed 12 years ago in Tampa, Florida. This is a rather chirpy ditty, despite the negative title; “This Christmas (I’ll Burn It To The Ground)”

It’s even closer to Chrimbo now and With Just A Hint Of Mayhem continues with a, mostly, punk themed 12 days of Christmas series up until Christmas Eve to take your mind off the mind fuck that 2020 has been! Today it is Fall Out Boy. These Illinois noisemakers and Pop Punk pioneers took there name from a comic in the Simpsons, that earns loads of cool Yule points in my opinion. This is the band with an excellently titled song for Christmas, “Yule Shoot Your Eye Out”. Enjoy!
