You know what makes us happy? Free Christmas rock’n’roll downloads. You know what makes us even more happy? Free Christmas rock’n’roll parties. What’s that? Today we’re getting both thanks to Earache and SSS. MAD SKILLS.

Liverpudlian thrasher-hardcore types, SSS, are giving away a very special seasonal song, ‘Merry ChristmaSSS’, for absolutely nothing. Foxy, the band’s frontmanes, had this to say:

“We are following in the footsteps of some of the greatest Christmas songs ever written from yesteryear – Slade, Wizzard, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Shakin Stevens, FEAR and Band Aid – that have all placed themselves firmly in our hearts and on cheap Christmas compilation CDs at this time of year. Now here’s our meagre festive rattler that will be played for years to come at family discos and shake the false teeth from all our nans’ heads.”

Click here to get your greasy mitts on a free download of SSS’s ‘Merry ChristmaSSS’. And if that’s whetted your appetite for things both SSS-ish and Christmas-ish, then get ready to rejoice even further – as tonight in London, the band are playing as part of Earache Records’ legendary free Christmas party. FOR FREE. We can’t get enough of that word. FREE!

If you’re coming, buy us a beer. We don’t get paid till Friday and quite frankly, we’re in need of all the boozy charity we can get. Consider it your Christmas gift to us.
