U.S. Exclusive Single Premiere: "Skinheads Home For Christmas" b/w "Yesterday's Hero" by Hard Left

Hard Left
4 November 2014

November is here! So pack away your Sexy Corn costume until next year and reach for the red cap and whiskers, ‘cause Christmas is right around the corner (don’t let that turkey distract you, love). The good folks at Future Perfect Records have just the thing to get us in the mood: a Christmas single from Hard Left, a leftist, political punk and “hard mod” band, based in Oakland, California, and comprised of former members of Lunchbox, Boyracer and Black Tambourine. It’s a ripping tune and great fun. But wait, there’s more! The flip is a Bay City Rollers cover, from the 1976 Dedication LP. Ho! Ho! Ho! Oi! Oi! Oi!

“Skinheads Home For Christmas” comes out December 8.
