Plus the records to listen to while digging into your Christmas tuck... would like to wish all its readers a very Happy Christmas. We hope you’ve got all the CDs and gig tickets you asked for.

He’s the top five records to spin today, Christmas Day:

‘Just Like Christmas’ – Low – nigh on perfect evocation of Christmas by the duo who spend the other 364 days of the year as heart-crushingScroogetastic miserablists ‘Endlessly’ – Mercury Rev – fragile, aching, beautiful near-carol from the greatest album of ’98 ‘Xmas Steps’ – Mogwai– nothing to do with Christmas really just beautiful in all the right places ‘Last Christmas’ – Manic Street Preachers (originally by Wham!) – bizarre but strangely right ‘Revolution Action’ – Atari Teenage Riot – because you have to stop this Christmas madness sometime.


And don’t miss Johnny Cigarettes‘s Christmas Message at 3pm today (it’s at the same time as the Queen on BBC1).
