BAH & THE HUMBUGS: BIGGER THAN SANTA
Featuring Humbugs songs performed by the following bands:
Who is Iron Reindeer? After eight albums, six international tours, and no fewer than three different documentary films titled "Who Is Iron Reindeer?" we still do not know. The notoriously secretive band wears masks onstage (iron reindeer masks, of course), avoids all contact with the press, and has managed to reveal nothing about their true identities. An abundance of clues, including scraps of backwards audio on their records, Sanscrit scrawls on the inner grooves of LPs, and no end of enigmatic lyrics, have provided fuel for countless conspiracy theories about the band. But the fact that the three aforementioned documentaries came to three different conclusions about Iron Reindeer's home country (Belgium, UK, or Canada?) shows that we're not even beginning to zero in on the answer.
Whoever they are, Iron Reindeer bring a unique brand of heavy psychedelic rock to the Christmas season. For their Bah & the Humbugs tribute, these enigmatic rockers provided their take on "Deaf Noel" -- a title that they insisted on re-spelling, capitalizing, and umlauting as "DËF NOËL." Another clue?
