This EP includes the previously unreleased Prissteens Christmas anthem "Christmas is a Time For Giving" which was recorded during the 'Scandal, Controversy, and Romance' sessions with legendary producer Richard Gottehrer at the helm (The Go-Go's, Blondie). The Bonus material is all remastered and very scarce b-sides! Teenage Dicks was pressed on an edition of 45 singles in a private pressing.
"...an instant Christmas classic that ought to become a new staple of your holiday playlists. You could totally slide it onto the A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector comp, and it would fit right in (...) Come Thanksgiving night when I pop open a pint of Troegs Mad Elf and break out tracks from The Yobs and the Dean Martin Christmas album, I will definitely be adding The Prissteens to the rotation!"
- FASTER AND LOUDER
"Track four of this ‘Christmas’ EP by the Prissteens finds these wayward wildcats detuning the immortal effervescent buzz of the Undertones ‘teenage kicks’ into a trash toned scuzzed out lust-o-rama fest called ‘teenage dicks’- blighters been on repeat play since strutting into our ear space. In total sharp contrast, ‘christmas is a time for giving’ is festooned in sleigh bell shimmers and seasonal selfishness not to mention being adored in the classic tones of Spector-esque yuletides long since past. ‘wildman’ is just off the radar, classic Estrus styled primordial rumble, raw ripping and primitive goo goo while ‘he’s luckier than you’ is your lo-fi wired frenetic scuzzing boogie much in awe of the Mummies."
