XTC – Drums And Wires (1979)

I got turned onto XTC when the song “Making Plans For Nigel” was used in the Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch. I’d heard it before but something about hearing it again made it stick with me, and it wasn’t long before I got this album on the go. It’s a strange affair, a lot of mixed vibes and bizarre songs, the weirdest one has to be “Complicated Game”, which seems like a mix between Adam Ant and something that Korn’s Jonathan Davies would have done vocally in his earlier years. Drums And Wires is a bizarre album, I’ll just leave it at that.
