Rat Fancy

Confession: I'm a sucker for the combination of unstable girlie voice + unstable piercing organ + rattling Bo Diddley beat. And that's what Rat Fancy from Austin, TX give us in their xmas original You Stole My XMas Sweater, which is nice. But it's a question of balance, of using the ingredients in just the right amount. That's why their version of The Ramones 'Merry Christmas I Don't Wanna Fight' doesn't work. At all.
