XTC: Love on a Farm Boy's Wages

Given this blog's recent interest in Swindon and Richard Jefferies, there is only one song to choose.

I mentioned this song in passing when I chose Me and the Farmer by the Housemartins. Now Swindon's finest get top billing.

You can read more about Swindon's finest on the Chalkhills site, but XTC are not the the town's claim to musical fame. In the early 1960s Rick Davies from Supertramp and Gilbert O'Sullivan were in the same band at Swindon College.

Davies was also a friend of the artist Ken White, who painted the mural I admired the other day.
