XTC

XTC was one of my favorite bands in the early 1980s and I think Generals and Majors was one of the first videos I saw on MTV.
I just love this song and the video.

A close second was Senses Working Overtime

Now I have to add Making Plans For Nigel

And I got my hair cut like Wendy Wonderful in Mayor of Simpleton because I didn’t just love this, I wanted to be her.

Towers of London followed Mayor of Simpleton on my Walkman

Then I added Dear God and now you know what I listened to until the tape broke. Wow, what a great flashback.

    Loved Madness, The Cure, The Clash, Gang of Four, The Pretenders, Psychedelic Furs…gosh I’m really reaching back, I wish I could find my tapes! Richard Branson was so funny (and weird) he hasn’t changed at all. Rock on Maaahk.
