Appropriately enough their cover of Elton John's 'Step Into Christmas' was included as the b-side for their December single and proved to be a dirtied up version of the 70's Christmas classic. The Wedding Present gave it their notable energy and while it doesn't quite eclipse the original it had boys in duffel coats smiling up and down the land.
