What says ‘Christmas’ more than a festive playlist put together by one of Iceland’s rowdiest punk propositions?

We’re extremely excited that Reykjavík’s Pink Street Boys will be joining Ja Ja Ja at our special free show at The Old Blue Last on Wednesday 25th November. The gig will have a bit of a pre-Christmas, ‘let’s get festive’ vibe happening, so to get us in the right mood, we invited the band to share their 10 favourite Christmas tunes in a playlist that we’ve aptly named, ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’…

Pink Street Boys will be performing alongside Norway’s Honningbarna and Denmark’s Get Your Gun as we celebrate rounding up another excellent year of Ja Ja Ja shows, so make sure that you join us there!

Ja Ja Ja Proudly Presents:
Honningbarna | Pink Street Boys | Get Your Gun

Wednesday 25th November 2015 – 7:30pm ’til late

Nightmare Before Christmas – A Festive Playlist from Pink Street Boys

1. Santo & Johnny – ‘Twistin’ Bells’

“There would be no holidays without some twistin’ and twanging with Santo & Johnny.”

2. The Ventures – ‘Sleigh Ride’

“Really gets me in a festive mood, I can almost smell my grandfather’s sweet potatoes and my family’s Tartalettur. Maybe I’ll mix me some Malt and Fanta tonight…”

3. Creedence Clearwater Revival – ‘Midnight Special’

“Good song about the spirit in the sky.”

4. Norman Greenbaum – ‘Spirit In The Sky’

“This should be Jesus’ theme song.”

5. Johnny Cash – ‘Were You There When They Crucified My Lord’

“The Holy Ghost was definitely there.”

6. Bunthean – ‘Joy To The World’

“A nice oriental spiritual cover. It’s good like KFC on Christmas.”

7. Twelve Days Of Christmas – ‘Karaoke’

“Before opening presents you must have a karaoke battle with your father.”

8. Dead Elvis And His One Man Grave – ‘Get Outta My Grave’

“Nothing says Christmas like Elvis and graves.”

9. Helgi Björns – ‘Ef ég nenni’

“This song is performed live on television in Iceland, every year since 1994, before mass on Christmas Eve.”

10. Slade – ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’

“Our favourite Christmas song is definitely Slade’s ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’. No reason, just super catchy.”
