Wow, Christmas Eve already, the bearded weirdo arrives on his sleigh tonight led by living venison with an inflamed nose! I wanted to end the 12 Days Of, Mostly, Punky Christmas, with a song that I love by a band that back in the day were the best by far! The Ramones with “Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)”, the video is rather good too 🙂

Happy Christmas to each and every one of you, thank you for sticking with this blog and let’s hope 2021 is so much better, it couldn’t be worse could it?

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!

The 12 Days Of, Mostly, Punky Christmas – Day 9

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!
