The Yobs - Christmas Album

This is the "start here" album for anyone interested in a punk rock Christmas. By now its probably not news to anyone that The Yobs are actually British punk outfit The Boys. A struggling relationship between the band and their label (NEMS) led them to release several albums of christmas themed punk rock under this alias. Considered by some to be merely a comedy record, its actually a fantastic punk album. Originally released in 1980 on Safari, its also been re-issued by Great Expectations in 1989 and Get Back in 2001.
