XTC - 3D EP

Most people will know XTC from some of their commercial hits like "Making Plans For Nigel". This a different and in my opinion a much better XTC.

3D Ep was their first single (released on 7" and 12" - mine is the 12" copy -lots of scans again). When I first heard "Science Friction" I was blown away, a brilliant song which hooks you instantly. The other two tracks are pretty good as well.

They did release a decent debut album and one other single before they become too poppy for me.

Band: XTC
Label: Virgin
Year: 1977
Tracks:
1. Science Friction
2. She's So Square
3. Dance Band

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:



If you like then try out their first album:

Hi anon thanks for the comment, Glad to make you laugh. Its funny now reading it, it does sound a bit naff, I knock them out and never really check them. For what its worth I think their first album is outstanding and from then on they were a bit too poppy fop me
