Music Review // JazzHands – The Christmas Roughly 2 Minute E.P.
Remember those punk albums that seemed to be posing as E.P’s? You know the type, with track timings so short you barely hear the chorus (if, indeed, there even is one) and aren’t even sure if the band or the songs have a name. JazzHands do have a name and having witnessed them in ear splitting action on many occasions we’re very sure they exist. This is proved to still be the case with the release of this very ironic E.P. for C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S.
With a running time of just over two minutes, this is by no means a Shakespearean listening prospect and its topic is certainly not one that is uncommon at this time of year. With titles that reference elves, fern trees and mistletoe and not a sleigh bell in sight it’s the kind of C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S record we approve of – who needs endless reference to snow, reindeers and cheer when you can have a band as tight as JazzHands throw their punk edged jazz into the seasonal arena? This may not be a listen that you introspect over or even do very over the course of due to its length but one thing’s for sure, new material from this band is always welcome…
