Q. Went to see the boys in Manchester they were unbelievable best I've ever seen them, but one problem they didn't play Christmas Lights :(
How come they haven't been playing it?


The Oracle replies:

The Manchester gig was on the 4th December which is a little early to be rolling out a Christmas song, no?
They performed it at Dingwalls last Tuesday but only as that is being broadcast this week on Radio 2 - a much more acceptable date to be playing festive songs I feel.
Oh and they did give it an airing on Saturday at the O2 as part of the Under 1 Roof night. It was interrupted by a certain Mr. Alan Partridge...
