Originally formed in the summer of 2002 in the wilds of Marion, North Carolina, and taking their name from an obscure Sam Peckinpah film reference, US Christmas (or USX) has steadily evolved into a full-blown psychedelic space rock assault. So far they''ve concocted two self-released CDr''s and a proper full length titled Salt The Wound (R.A.I.G, 2005). Now a five-piece unit of Matt Johnson (theremin, guitar), Nate Hall (guitar, vox), Tim Greene (drums), John Presnell (bass), Chad Davis (synth, guitar) and Ben Teeter (synth, keys, blips), they create very loud, loose and free music in a definite nasty psychedelic vein, mixing dirge, gooey sludge metal, blues and early country. US Christmas was one of the first unsigned bands to send a CD to the internet music show Combat Music Radio hosted by Neurosis'' Scott Kelly. It wasn''t long before the band heard from Scott, who began frequently playing US Christmas songs on KMBT. This lead to a release agreement with Neurot Recordings. This four song vinyl only EP precedes the band''s full length Eat The Low Dogs, currently due out in March 2008. USX hurts people - physically and mentally. The music stirs intense feelings of pain, frustration, loss, fear, and occasionally - euphoria. This band makes music that cannot be ignored. TRACKLISTING: 01. LAZARUS 02. THE SCALPHUNTERS 03.
