I had that years back. Another piece of vinyl that has sadly disappeared. If memory serves me I was always reminded of those B-Side tracks that XTC threw up to surprise the unwary punter.

I still have to plump for the obvious:

Making Plans For Nigel and Sgt Rock as superlative examples of XTC.

Making Plans For Nigel:


A MASSIVE part of my childhood:

The way I understand it, they ended up resenting what Rundgren did with the production. It's one of those cases where 99% of the fanbase and critics said it was their finest work, but the authors spent the whole time casting aspersions on it.

Personally I love the album.

From what i've read it was more to do with there being a huge personality clash between Rundgren & Partridge and with them always at each others throats rather than what Rundgren actually did on the album.

Partridge is quite complimentary about Rundgren's work on that album these days.

I ask myself should I put my finger to the left, no
I ask myself should I put my finger to the right, no
I say it really doesn't matter where I put my finger
Someone else will come along and move it
And it's always been the same
It's just a complicated game



oh, and

My microbes and I
We can't wait to lay down and die
Realize that we must be spent
Like the cells that dissolve when a brainwave is sent

Honestly I'd say my favorite album by them is Oranges & Lemons...I don't know why, and I'm probably in the minority here.

There are far too many people out there who've never heard of them; I haven't met anyone who's heard even Making Plans For Nigel. That said, everyone I've introduced them to now loves them, so I've done my fair share of spreading the word
