Super Mega XTC Part 5

OK, I am pissed......PISSED because I cannot find my "25 O'Clock" from the Dukes Of Stratosphear, one of the two fine psychedelic albums released by XTC under that name... normally if I cannot find it, I check the Bay or whatever, but I simply cannot locate it... I KNOW I have it, it kicks ass, but I cannot find it, on my shelf, on the web.... CERTAINLY one of the blog friends will have it, I just happen to KNOW I have it and can't find it, this pisses one off in the share-blog game.

So, SOMEONE, please bail me out on this one.... enjoyed the Ohio State Buckeyes taking out Navy today, thinking it might be a difficult season for the Bucks without QB Braxton Miller, but if there is one thing I love, it is football, Ohio State and Minnesota Vikings,and would LOOOOOVE fo you guys to discuss "your" football teams while we discuss music.... ahhhhhhhhhh, autumn in Ohio, football, RETIREMENT...... oh, heaven!

OK, I do have the OTHER Dukes album, "Chips From the Chocolate Fireball", a fine psychedelic album in its own right, while I think "25 O'Clock" is better, this one is quite good as well...."Bike Ride the Moon", "Have You Seen Jackie", and lots more, another display of Partridge/Moulding's unreal versatility.

OK, someone (See comments yesterday) contributed the dub album I was searching for, as well as some other goodies, thanks.... if someone will please contribute "25 OClock", we'll pretty much have the XTC experience down pat.... today, I am going to add a tribute album (haven't heard it, I don't think), and another demo set I uncovered from the whole "Apple Venus" thing........

Come on folks, there have been some fine contributions here, if ya have anything else, now is the time.... tomorrow we switch directions (to where? God only knows), but I hope you have enjoyed the XTC, an if you have anything to add, please do, ESPECIALLY (APB) "25 O'Clock" by Dukes of Stratosphear!

  2. "25 O'Clock", together with the other Dukes' album "Psonic Psunspot", are contained totally in "Chips from the Chocolate Fireball", that is the compilation of both albums.

  10. I'm a little late to the party but I was recently looking around for some Dukes of Stratosphear and I found both of the re-issues (25 O'Clock and Psonic Psunspot) which came out a little while after the "Chips From The Chocolate Fireball" compilation, and they both have extras!! So, I'm sharing!!

    Enjoy!!

    Edit:
    (I just noticed that the first comment shared this link, but I figured I'd add some clarification)
