In 2000 they’ve gave us yet another reason to love them when they offered a Christmas song for the charity album ‘It’s A Cool, Cool Christmas’. The slow march of ‘Gift X-Change’ was a departure from the well travelled road of the traditional festive tune and while it’s cerebral approach might not have been to everyone’s taste it nonetheless offered a nice alternative to the usual December fare.
