While out the the other night I heard “Making Plans For Nigel” – piping out of a juke – reminding me that I haven’t spent near enough quality time lately with my favorite XTC album, Drums & Wires. The video aired when I was a kid. I’m happy to report that it’s as bizarre now as I remember it being during the early days of MTV.

  1. I don’t know why, I’ve never heard a version of this song that I didn’t love. I’m sure a terrible cover of it exists but I haven’t heard it yet.

  2. I like XTC but i like The Dukes of Stratosphere even more

  3. Primus did a SICK cover of this song. It’s on their EP “Miscellaneous Debris” and is definitely worth checking out if you dig XTC.

  4. wow haven’t heard this in a looooonnnnnnng time.

  5. One of my absolute fave XTC songs – somehow I managed to make it through life without ever seeing the video – thanks for sharing.
