SotD: XTC, “Mayor of Simpleton”

This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to visit for a few hours with my college friend Warren, aka Professor Mondo.  We met in Greenville, SC–did lunch at a very nice Middle Eastern restaurant, checked out a great used book/music place, and finished up with mocha Frappucinos at you-know-where.  Along the way, we caught up on each other’s lives, talked about our worldviews and national affairs, and of course, discussed music!  It was a fab time, and I hope we’re afforded the chance to meet again before too long.

At one point in the conversation we both expressed our admiration for the British band XTC.  I’m a big fan of their albums Skylarking and Oranges and Lemons; an especial favorite of mine is the lead single from Oranges. It’s pure pop heaven, Andy Partridge’s disrespect for mathematics notwithstanding.
