Back again for its 16th anniversary (Barring a few gaps off course), DIH and friends at Christmas are now after experimental and music tracks on the theme of Christmas.
Back now in it’s 16th year, as can be seen on www.digitalvomit.com/dih-and-friends, DIH and friends have since 2002 been producing a annual series of anti Christmas songs for people who really don’t like Christmas or have a very alternative viewpoint of the season in question.
The history of the project from digital vomit state ‘The origin behind the infamous series of DIH with friends at Christmas began back in 2002 when for a one off joke as a side project from his more official work in DIH, Andy N one year decided with the help of one or two friends decided to do in his words ‘ A Christmas album for those people who don’t really like Christmas’ where in the space of half an hour (as was the original plan) – Andy and a few friends would murder, cripple and take the piss out of as many songs as they could.
However, as is the nature of the beast with this sort of thing things snowballed and by the time the second album came along, It had become officially a DIH project where they would between the three of them alongside with an ever-increasing cast play around with the myth of the Christmas, which will often be funny and sad sometimes within the same breath.
The music contained within this series of albums are varied and can vary from spoken word (sometimes with musical backing or experimental backing), acoustic singer songwriter stuff to music that could appeal to fans of Aphex Twin, hardcore, breakbeats, dubstep, fans of the spoken word,
re-imagining of carols and classic songs, faithful versions of Christmas carols and songs and generally people who like their music to challenge and make them think.
For reasons too long winded and boring to go into here, DIH took a break from the Christmas albums in 2012.
Following on from their 2015 comeback, we are now expecting submissions for our 2017 album, our third album since starting up again.
Anything is welcome by email to either myself firstname.lastname@example.org. (Andy N)
