XTC is one of the more interesting bands to spring from England's 80's post-punk / new wave movement.  The band was much more popular with critics than with public consumers, though XTC did see some moderate chart success later in their career.  The first two mp3's come from their 1982 album, English Settlement.  The third is a cover of one of their more popular singles, "Making Plans For Nigel", performed by Primus.  God bless you, Les Claypool.

from English Settlement (1982)

from Primus' Miscellaneous Debris (1992)

I love Making Plans for Nigel and English Roundabout. Downloaded a whole album of theirs, and they're excellent. Thanks for sharing!
