Back in 1993 the Charlatans and St. Etienne were reaching their creative peaks so pairing the good looking leads from each band for a Christmas single must have seemed like a good idea. As it turned out it was both sonically and commercially successful. ‘I Was Born On Christmas Day’ is a happy go lucky festive piece of cheer with much of the creative impetus coming from the St. Etienne side of the house with electronic bleeps and whizzes forming the tunes decorative appearance. Cracknell and Burgess combine well vocally sounding like lovestruck teenagers about to paint the town Santa red. The thumping percussion is perhaps not best consumed with a hungover on Christmas morn but for the rest of the time it’ll have you rockin around the fake plastic tree. KD
