XTC - Respectable Street


On this date in 1981, XTC released their twelfth single, "Respectable Street". It was backed by "Strange Tales, Strange Tails" and "Officer Blue". The A side was a remixed, and radio friendly, version of the track that appeared on their fourth album, Black Sea. The B sides were non-LP tracks. The Swindon, England post punk/new wave band called it quits in 2006 when Colin Moulding expressed a desire to call it quits. Andy Partridge didn't feel that it would be XTC without the both of them.
