“More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
“Now Prowler! Now Stomper! Now, Filthy and Nasty!

Evil Blizzard are hitting what must surely be the dizzying zenith of their career about now, what with bootleg Preston North End shirts featuring their likeness and now, like all the top show-biz acts, the release of a special Christmas single. Giddy with the excitement of it all it appears they spent the entire video budget on the slick one for the new year release of ‘Sacrifice’, leaving about £3 over to make one for festive smash ‘Nothing For Christmas’.
