Holiday-themed posts aren't usually my thing, although last week I posted a Thanksgiving one ("Wishbone Fight") and not one of you even mentioned it. Seeing as I'm not one to learn from experience, I'm going to go ahead with a Christmas carol now, even though Christmas carols are pretty lame. I mean, it's hard to listen to "Little Drummer Boy" without picturing Bing Crosby and David Bowie standing together and wishing you were there to take 'em both out with a hand grenade. Luckily, Rifle Sport's version doesn't come off like complete shit; Gerard Boissy's guitar is set to full blast, and with Todd Trainer kicking the crap out of his drums, this actually sounds pretty rocked, like it coulda been on Motley Crue's "Shout at The Devil" or something. Endnotes: 1) Rifle Sport are one of the best bands to come out of the Midwest back in the '80s (it's true, you can look it up). 2) Back cover hastily retouched so that Photobucket doesn't have one of their usual shit fits, sorry.
