XTC : Generals and Majors
In August of 1980 XTC released their UK#32 hit "Generals And Majors", the first single from their forthcoming classic album Black Sea. The catchy tune is written by bassist Colin Moulding. The video features a cameo by Virgin Records label owner Richard Branson
According to Andy Partridge, Branson appeared "because he's a complete publicity hog. He decided he was gonna turn up and keep suggesting that he be in the video. That is the worst video ever made by man."
