Oh dear, poor Andy….
Look. Nigel was Colin’s, pure and simple. And it’s the iconic XTC track, and one of the great tracks of the post-punk period. When people think of XTC, they think of Nigel. Yes, that may be unjust, yes, your vision may have sustained XTC: but the fact is this. XTC=Nigel and worse, Nigel=XTC.
Bad for Andy, great for the the world.
