Saint Etienne have been responsible for some truly glorious pop music since 1990. Having scored several hits by 1993, and that year having released the fantastic So Tough set (which may still be their best album), they finished off the year by releasing this duet with Tim Burgess of The Charlatans (who were then about to release their third album Up To Our Hips) ‘I Was Born On Christmas Day.’
