Various Artists - Bollocks To Christmas

It's Christmas time for the punks and skins!  Released by Secret Records in 1981, this EP features some great cover art and some holiday Oi anthems from four of the most popular skinhead acts of the early eighties.  The 4-Skins perform Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody", a decent effort however it's nearly identical to the original.  The Business plow through Elton John's "Step Into Christmas" (by far the best track on this 7 inch).  Max Splodge and The Gonads also contribute their versions of some classics, neither of which is very listenable.  These tracks were later re-released as a compilation CD under the same name with additional tracks from UK Subs, The Yobs, Judge Dread and The Macc Lads, to name a few.
