Christ this is good! If there’s one single we just can’t get enough of right now it’s the spanking new three-minute romp by the heavenly Hot Leg.

I’ve Met Jesus is out on Monday and it’s everything you’d expect from Justin Hawkins tackling a true biblical legend. Religious reverence, respect for the true believers and a bloody good riff to boot.

Now Hawkins has form when it comes to releasing Christmas crackers and if this isn’t likely to cause the quite the commercial stir that Don’t Let The Bells End  did all those years ago it definitely deserves to. The second single off Hot Leg’s debut album Red Light Fever – due for release in February – is the luxury Mince Pie of festive tunes.

I’ve Met Jesus sounded great at Newcastle City Hall last month and it’ll sound even better as you sit around the fire with your granny sipping mulled wine in two weeks’ time. Maybe.
