XTC - Apple Venus
How great were XTC? The transition from energetic nervy new wave group into some of the most ambitious and best songwriters England has ever seen is truly incredible. After the band went on strike following their fall-out with Virgin Records they eventually came back in 1999 with this gorgeous record that sadly went under the radar at the time. It finally gets the high quality vinyl reissue it deserves 20 years later. Can we have a Nonsuch reissue next please? Must listen tracks -- Easter Theatre, Harvest Festival and The Last Balloon.
