This is not the time to be putting up Christmas trees, although it feels that way listening to Red Light Company’s Meccano intro. With a xylophone pinging chime, it’s not hard to believe a remake of Jingle Bells will be jumping into your ear hole right about now. Seven seconds later electric guitars release a noise explosion followed by frontman Richard Frenneaux urging us to ‘listen to the things we sa-ay’.

This is a poptastic rocking tune which will have crowds knocking themselves out. At times it seems more like a religious plea with Meccano as the sacred toy we are all searching for; maybe a metaphor for finding our place in this big wide world. Whatever it is, it will probably have some mystical effect on the success of Red Light Company sometime very soon.
