X is for XTC



The XTC song “Making Plans for Nigel” is really fun. The video is flat-out creepy. I’m amazed I never heard of XTC until recently. I’m glad to have found them.


Today’s fake artist is Xena, named for the fictional warrior princess. With a heavy saxophone sound, they remind me of Michael Stanley Band. Those guys performed in my neck of the woods growing up. I miss snuggling with my lover at Front Row Theatre during the ballad "Lover". By the way, that's Kevin Raleigh singing for MSB here, not Mr. Stanley himself.

  1. Great choice for X, I love this song! Never seen the video before though, interesting one. Didn't know the second song but I love a bit of sax!

    1. Thank you, Nick. I'm glad you enjoyed the tune. Sad to say, The Michael Stanley Band only had one national hit and never really broke out of the Cleveland Ohio USA market. Be well!
