Xmas messthetics from FYTINI and friends.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Max Stirner comes to town every 27th of December. He visits the middleclasses spreading the message of discontent along with black tar and Christmas rubbish. His big red sack carries knives, broken circuits and emotional disturbances. You’ll never hear anyone talking of this, it’s a dirty secret of late capitalist western (and westernised) societies. ‘Let it Go, Let it Go, Let it Go’: the Ghosts of Modernist Past and the avant gnomes of the twentieth century are singing broken carols, telling stories, re-telling stories, identifying and losing tracks, recording sounds and making Christmas pies.

Track Name: (The Other) - Big Xmas
welcome to christmas. we are very pleased to see you at yet another christmas occasion. this christmas is going to be the biggest you’ve had so far. every christmas is the biggest you’ve had, as it adds up to all other previous christmasses. the older you get, the bigger christmas becomes. it is rather important that you manage to spend as many christmasses as possible, in order to reach optimum christmas size later in life. so be happy, be merry and remember: the more you live, the bigger christmas becomes!

Track Name: Daniel - Drummerboy
Come they told me parapapam pam
Christ was born on the edge of the earth,
I am searching the sky tonight
I’m looking to find the bright star
rapapapam rapapapam
to take me to the little king,
far away ....


In the crib the sheep awaken
and humble shepherds worship
in the Virgin arms
he wears a gold crown from light
rapapapam rapapapam
my heart is beating,
and he smiles at me....
Track Name: λΑΜΠΕΡΟύΚ - Κερά Καμηλοτράχηλη
(Aagean Islands Christmas song)

and the Mrs Teacher beat him with a pearl!
Track Name: Μεταθεοδοσία - Κάλαντα Αρχάγγελου (feat. G. F. Haendel)
(Archangel, Rhodes Island Carols)
Good evening my Lord, it’s dawn and you are still asleep
may the morning be good to you as you sit and listen
we came to your door by your own permission
please my Lord do not frown upon our visit.

If it is the Lord’s wish for us to sign the carols
and only us from all the rest to say to you ‘good evening’
First of the month first of the year, It’s January first!
It’s the month of Jesus Christ the month of Saint Nicolas

(The Other)
"traveling around the world one finds millions of stories of love, joy and togetherness at Christmas
Everyone sings the same songs, ancient carols. Lovingly handed down to children, by their teachers and given to heathens by jolly empire builders. just as the winter snows whiten the green lands of Europe. So our holly carols seek to bring the same pure whiteness to the darkest of nights."
Track Name: Steven Ball - On the Wyrd
mistletile fertle
hollyberries
plant the tree
Modranicht wild hunt
drink the ale
hlautbolli beast hlaut
hlautteinar smear hlaut on temple
boiled meating, fires lit, hung kettles
Odin, king, victory, power
comes the belsnickel,
belsnickeling, riddling and seeking
Wudan great horned hunter solstice reborn
berchtaslaaf, the goddess Berchta
herring and gruel banquet
kindred, your hearth,
our godhi, our gydhja
our hof in the ve
wearing our valknuts
hung low like a pendant
yule the wheel of the year
drink mead and ale
tell poem, cant and slang
light fires, candles, torches
Blót mead the deities
evergreen tree
sprig and branch
mead on the ground, on the fire
sumbel drink mead from the horn
toasts, oaths, and boasts
heroes, ancestors
the wyrd of community
Track Name: Ed Crooks - Google Carols
Once in Royal David’s City
Lived a lonely cattle shed
Where a mother birthed a baby
With a shotgun for a head
Mary was that mother mild
Jesus Christ her little child
Forgotten the rest
While shepherd’s watched their flocks by night
All seated round the tub
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory did something or other
Forgotten the rest
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn king
Is this the one about Mary’s womb and God’s head?
Oh come all ye faithful
Glory and triumphant
Oh come all ye faithful
And do this that and the other
Mary had a little lamb
But that’s not a carol
That’s it. Literally nothing else.
Track Name: Ξέφρενο Αερόστατο & Φρατζολέτ - Xmas Cabaret

Track Name: (The Other) - Everything Stops for Xmas
As an old saying goes, everything stops for Christmas. The amount of love involved in this season is just way too much for capitalism to go about its normal business. we all remember the winter of 1914 when the fighting sides of germany and england stopped the battle for a day or two to indulge in a football game. a game of questionable quality maybe, but that is not the issue here. the human spirit triumphs at christmas. and so can you, risk-free. you can be jolly and giving as you keep in mind that the 27th of december is only a few days away and the truce will most certainly end once more.

Track Name: Nan Del’ Ink - Grease for Xmas
as you flush it down the toilet
you might not think of where it could end up
beneath the bowels of the city
all the fat inside the pipes builds up

ohhh let the fatberg emerge
the big iceberg at the center of the world

floating silently beneath us now.
just like an omen alleluia
oooh a sign of god's hate
an airplane sized clot of human waste

leaking from our greasy foods
chip fat, lard, and wasted booze
waxy drippings, glacial ooze
growing in the greasy underground!!

now no man on earth can save us
fast amassing spawn of satan
mating and accumulating
growing in the greasy underground!!

we never wanted just to die here
we wanted to be lively
now something will survive us
a fatberg made of grease and pie meat

Track Name: KavecS - Christmas Commons
(The Other)
"that millenia-old human need for sharing and the return to an essential version of the self is the theme of an archival hellenic song we have discovered, dating back to 2014. “let’s build communal gardens in the middle of the streets” chants this romantic singer."

............................................................

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree
I like you, how I like you
Go forth, our marbles, shine
And on the mountains partisans
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas Tree
Hellas, Hellas, Hellas
All together, Oh Christmas Tree
in monasteries and mountains
All together All together
Let’s build the Commons.
Let’s live more naturally
orchards in the streets
Oh Christmas tree
let’s love each other again
Track Name: WE - All WE Want For Christmas Is You
WE don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing WE need
WE don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

WE just want you for our own
More than you could ever know
Make our wish come true
All WE want for Christmas is you, yeah.

WE don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing WE need
And WE don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

WE don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day

WE just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All WE want for Christmas is you
You, baby
Track Name: Aimee & Dom - The Fatberg

Track Name: Λουίζα Δολόξα - Μαίρη Κρίτσμας
mary kritsmas. why did i remember her. but of course! mary kritsmas used to go and secretly drink her father’s ouzo. people saw her at school and wondered “what is this about?” and she went and drank her father’s ouzo in secret. but me, i have a different story to tell you about mary kritsmas. or another one. maybe i’m a little bit confused.

mary kritsmas had a somewhat peculiar home. she chose not to live in her family home, except when she drank her father’s ouzo. neither mather nor fother knew where Mary slept and where she spent her time. This was mary kritsmas’s closely guarded secret and often mather and fother would tell her “where are you going, useless daughter???” but she would laugh. and they would beat her and she would laugh some more. She was such a tramp, my lovely/beloved girl.

Mary Krits
MAS NEVER WENT WHERE YOU’D THINK SHE WOULD
MAS NEVER WENT ANYWHERE WHERE YOU THINK SHE DID AND THE MOTHERS BEAT ME BECAUSE I DIDN’T GET INTO THE HOUSE AND THEY CAME OUT AND SHOUTED WHERE ARE YOU GOING WORTHLESS DAUGHTER AND I CRIED AND TRIED TO PASS. THROUGH THE DOOR.

kissed girl, bitten girl, no place in the walnut tree for you, said the door but only Mary kritsmas could hear it. The mather could only hear herself calling Mary Kritsmas a useless daughter. kissed girl, bitten girl, no place in the walnut tree for you, said the door and Mary Kritsmas would leave and come to me in secret and I would kiss her where they beat her and bite her where it hurt. Mary Kritsmas. Kissed girl, bitten girl, no place in the walnut tree for you.

Track Name: (The Other) - Nativity Scene
and on the 25th day the heavens opened and the lord’s ultra powerful searchlights pointed towards a little stable in bethlehem. the light bounced from the sky down to the earth and refracted in multiple directions, in rays of approximately equal distance between them. the birds began to sing the cows squirted milk in everybody’s mouth and the joys of jesus started spreading. as jesus was a child and at that point could not speak yet, he only opened his mouth, but the content of his thoughts echoed as a voice from above. and the voice told everyone how to live and established methodologies of well-being.
