XTC ORANGES AND LEMONS
This is a call to anyone who is still interested in the nuances of song craft, melody and very intelligently assembled pop rock. XTC leader Andy Partridge had to rescue the source tapes for this gem and bake them in order to prepare this immaculate disc for reissue. No agenda here, just a reminder to look past the cool, Carnaby Street throwback cover (designed by Heinz Edelmann) to feast your ears on a fantastic album that still resonates 26 years on from its 1989 release.
"Mayor of Simpleton" (just absorb those bass lines as they fly through the air)
"Here Comes President Kill Again" Still relevant in so many respects.
Enjoy it here and buy the refurbished version when it is available...
