XTC - No Thugs in Our House

This is a excellent version of XTC performing live on the seminal music show, The Grey Whistle Test. Andy Partridge would soon develop crippling stage fright. They wouldn't perform live again until a Letterman appearance several years later, and limited their infrequent appearances thereafter to studios, I recall.

XTC - King For a Day

Lest we forget Milwaukee:

Violent Femmes - Add it Up

What? What's that?! Ya say it ain't roll 'n' roll w/o a xylophone?

Violent Femmes - Gone Daddy Gone

That Chemeleons stuff is awesome! And the Yaz and Howard Jones tunes make me want to buy an analog synth.

I think Ministry broke into the biz as a pop band and then changed their style to what they wanted to do after (or on) their first CD. (Or, something like that).
