Released: Jan 1986
Label: Virgin Records
On this 1986 masterpiece, XTC combine their pastoral English folk side with the retro Beatles-eque psych pop of their Dukes of Stratosphere side project. Heavy FM radio play for "Earn Enough for Us" and "Dear God" (a surprise hit, this B-side was later added to the LP). Just lovely, with Moulding and Patridge's contributions seamlessly forming a summer concept album.
