Classic Tracks

I reckon this is a classic, although I suspect Nigel's bright future in British Steel got somewhat fucked in 1988. XTCs earlier works are excellent stuff - I think you can hear their influence on bands like Franz Ferdinand.

Tell me if I'm wrong.

You're dead right about Franz Ferdinand. Heavily influenced by XTC.

I was listening to a good bit of XTC by the pool on my recent jollies. Love On A Farm Boys Wages is another favourite.

Must rip a bit of SLF onto the iPod as well.
