    Totally agree with your views on XTC. Criminally overlooked.

    Apparently the podcast doesn’t work on my iPhone and the sound quality online is terrible. The question rises why dedicate a podcast to an album you obviously don’t like , misquoting lyrics, making farfetched comparisons, doing barely any research or in-depth analysis.
    Suddenly I don’t mind the podcast not working.
