Christmas carols: folded, spindled, and mutilated.

The premiere release from Seattle-based Substance W, A Boiling Vat Of Adhesive Xmas (pronounced "ex-muss" in case you miss the comic book reference) is a 74-minute nonstop genre-jumping marathon of unpredictable yet highly accessible takes on Christmas songs old and new. If you're a fan of incredibly strange music, celebrity "golden throats," Perrey & Kingsley, Combustible Edison, The Residents, electronica, punk rock, Esquivel, the occasional attack of a monophonic CASIO keyboard, or you sometimes like to impersonate Neil Diamond at karaoke bars... Well then, this album was made especially for you, by people just like you.
