They're alright LE, for me a bit like REM one of those bands I don't really like or hate - they've done good stuff and a few clunkers along the way... but much better than some of the showers of, that have higher profiles/reps etc.

I think a 7" of 'Sgt. Rock ( Is Going To Help Me )' by XTC was the first proper record I ever owned ( other than a Smurfs LP ), I think my brother must've bought it me as I was only about 10 when it came out.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
I got a couple of singles but I must admit that XTC have been a band that i have discovered looking back rather than at the time. The first of their's I can remember at the time was Senses Working Overtime. I believe it was on either the first NOW album or the rival Hits compilation so that would be 1983 I think. They did a documentary on the band a few years ago looking at their career and the bands style is to keep it down to earth and not be "Rock'N'Roll" ,worth a watch.
Just watching this video for Making Plans For Nigel and it looks like the band got a big flat panel tv 20 years before they came out. Groundbreaking and ahead of their time Love this track. Such a tune.
