Some people say that there can be no good new Christmas tracks, but Catholic Action have just proved them wrong with the release of ‘No Angels’. Glasgow’s finest sound like the Beatles circa-The White Album, after one too many sherries on this seasonal track. There are touches of country in the guitar and the harmonica, while the hilarious lyrics and sleigh bells add a holiday piss up feel. Changes in tempo and a boozed up brass section seal the deal on what is (despite the fact its only December 1st) going to be one of the best Christmas tracks.
