Day 11 – A song from your favorite band

At least at this moment and for the purposes of this post, my favorite band is XTC. Andy Partridge, Colin Moulding, Dave Gregory et al. have been making clever, intricate, forward-looking pop music for more than 30 years. They’ve had a couple of minor hits (“Dear God,” “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead”), but they’ve always been more about consistent albums than a singles band. Their output is huge, especially when you include Partridge’s solo recordings and the work from psychedelic alter-egos the Dukes of Stratosphear. And for all that material, there’s very little fluff–every album has at least a few absolute gems. So without further ado, enjoy some XTC.
