A Damaged Christmas Gift For You

A Damaged Goods Christmas Compilation featuring some of the best Christmas tracks we’ve released over the last 20 odd years.

This originally was released as a digital only compilation in 2009. We eventually put it out on vinyl (with a slightly revised tracklisting) in 2021.

Holly Golightly has two tracks on here, her classic ‘Christmas Tree On Fire and one from 2002 with The Green Hornes (some of who went on to be in the Raconteurs) called ‘Little Stars.

Billy Childish has three tracks with three different bands, The MBEs’ excellent ‘Christmas 1979′, The Buff Medways’ ‘Merry Christmas Fritz’ and a really early DG release by Thee Headcoatees, ‘Santa Claus’ (originally Damgood12, a 7” Picture Disc).

Also featured are Goldblade and Poly Styrene’s ‘City Of Christmas Ghosts’ as well as 2005’s TV Smith single ‘Xmas Bloody Xmas’ plus 2001’s Helen Love Xmas 7” ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Wanna Fight)’.

There are also exclusive tracks from Severe, The Cute Lepers and The Singing Loins, plus a couple of obscure tracks from the 1994 and 1996 christmas singles, Wat Tyler doing ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ and Monkhouse (a great lost band from Belfast) doing ‘Guinness And Wine’.

DG’s latest signing the Courettes make the vinyl cut with ‘Christmas (I Can Hardly Wait)’.
