213 XTC

A Fantastic and prolific band, if some of you only know "Nigel" then you know very little about XTC... Their Skylarking album produced by Todd Rundgren is one of the finest albums ever made, along with Drums and Wires and English Settlement... Brilliant songwriting! The song Dear God is one of my all time favourites... Courageous and brilliant!

"There is no language in our lungs" to describe how talented this band was in the 80's.
