X'mas Time (It Sure Doesn't Feel Like It)
The song "X'mas Time (It Sure Doesn't Feel Like It)" written by Paul + Peter O'Halloran and produced by Jonathan Paley, was featured on the "Midnite XMas Mess" 1984 Midnight Records compilation.
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones recorded a cover of the song in 1997 for Mercury Records compilation "Home for the Holidays". Letters to Cleo also covered it - along with songs from Elvis & the Kinks - on their 2019 Dot Rat EP "OK Christmas".
Download the classic recording on Bandcamp, or listen to it on your favorite streaming platform. Happy holidaze from the Dogmatics!
"I Can't Get Over You" is nothing more and nothing less than a straight-ahead rock 'n' roll tune in a timeless style. It's got a great hook, and it will get your toes tapping in no time flat... Jerry Lehane sure knows how to write a three-chord rock 'n' roll tune!
The years seem to just melt away when you hear the new Dogmatics song “I Can’t Get Over You”. The song is mid-80’s Dogmatics ...It has two of the attributes we love the most with punk songs – it’s catchy and short. At 1:52 you can listen to it over and over – you know we did.

Not content to be remembered for their old classics, The Dogmatics are well on their way to authoring a whole slew of new ones. This band honors the past but is not stuck in it.
The Dogmatics have been at it making great rock n roll for awhile now. The passion is clearly still there on the latest single “Drop That Needle”
The recording is sharp, the beat is urgent, the guitar solos are restrained and hit their mark. The Dogmatics have the ability to capture a time gone by with a song that makes your feet move now.
‘Treat’ yourself and blast this new Dogmatics release out of your speakers large and small! ‘Drop That Needle’ repeatedly on this one!

Episode 182: The Dogmatics
November 26, 2022 "The Dogmatics were on a roll in the mid eighties with two great albums out on Homestead Records, huge college radio support, and tour dates across America, when tragedy struck and leader/bassist Paul O'Halloran was killed in a motorcycle accident. They would play occasional shows over the years but returned with a vengence in 2018 signing with RumBar Records. They have been on a roll ever since releasing a series of great EP's garnering radio play and renewed fan support..."
“Think Twice is unlike anything you’ve ever heard from The Dogmatics before. This folk tune is a collaboration with James Young (from Peter O’ Halloran & The Hired Men), who sings lead vocals and plays mandolin. I hope The Dogmatics do more songs like this in the future!”
