XTC : Science Friction
On October 7, 1977 art rockers XTC released their debut EP, 3D. In their herky jerky, agit-pop years XTC and especially vocalist Andy Partridge could grate on the same ears that admired the oblique tunefulness and intelligence of the early songs. "Science Friction" and "She's So Square" are both Partridge tunes while "Dance Band" is a Colin Moulding song. So much nervous tension!
