Why is this worthy of my time and money?: For ages now, people with no belief in the superpowers of a baby born in a stable two thousand years ago have found no problem with using the very event whose significance they doubt as an excuse for one hell of a knees up. This Christmas, we expect to hear 'Let's Make Love and Listen To Death From Above', 'Alala' and 'Alcohol' at pretty much every antichristicular party we go to, rather than 'Away In A Manger', 'Silent Night' and the like. Which suits us. Yet if you feel that trio of tunes has been somewhat overplayed (and you got a point), get yourself to one of these dates and hear them completely reinvigorated, as a live band breathes fresh life into tunes you thought you were so over before thoroughly convincing you that said collection of songs is only the beginning of all that's good and fun about CSS.
