Out On Blue Six Christmas: Saint Etienne

Let's rewind the clock to Christmas twenty-four years (how can it be that long ago already?) and St Etienne's musical gift to all - Xmas 93

Released on 6th December, 1993, Xmas 93 was a festive themed single from the band which featured a collaboration with Tim Burgess from The Charlatans on the lead single, the memorable I Was Born On Christmas Day, which reached number 37 in the UK charts and was a nod towards the band's keyboard player Bob Stanley who was indeed born on December 25th. Also included on the single were three other tracks; a cover of Billy Fury's 1959 song, My Christmas Prayer, and two original incidental tracks, Snowplough and Peterloo. All are here for your pleasure

End Transmission
