"My turntable sometimes spins a bit oddly at 45 rpm, which in this case might work very much in its advantage. Meeuw Muzak dont do a Christmas 7" every year, but heres one for 2016, recorded by visual artist, Ultra Eczema boss and sound artist Dennis Tyfus, responsible for voice and cassettes, along with Kris Maes, who plays guitar and cut work, as well as doing the recording. In much of Tyfus work, as far as I know it, the voice plays a central role along with noise from mixing consoles and stuff he recorded on cassettes; a kind of lo-fi sound poetry perhaps. Here he has a collage of Christmas instrumentals, an atmospheric slide guitar playing one and his own voice announcing Kerst (Christmas, in case you didnt realize); it is quite a funny little tune, Stevige Nacht (fierce night, as opposed to silent night), with Tyfus (?) as a choir boy in the end.

I wont spoil what is funny about De Kerstdagen, and Im sure if you are not Dutch you wont get it at all, but I thought it was incredible funny. Now you see: Christmas might be a horrible time of the year or not, depending on how much you like to be on your own and I surely like to be on my own, drinking wine, smoking a good cigar and by now have the prospect of a great afternoon playing all Meeuw Muzak 7"s so far that deal with Christmas. On all the other kerstdagen I should play all the other Meeuw Muzak releases and then its New Years Day. Lovely! Bring those damned days on!" - Frans DeWaard.
