The Day They Pulled The North Pole Down:Mr. Partridge

Artist: Mr. Partridge (XTC)

Album: Take Away/The Lure Of Salvage, Explode Together (The Dub Experiments 78-80)

Appears On (Mixes): Pray For My TV Show

Song Notes: I'm a big fan of the Andy Partridge dub album, Take Away/The Lure Of Salvage. There's some really, really great songs on that, and the cool thing is, they're all made out of other really great songs. This song, in fact is based off of Colin Moulding's "Heatwave", taken from the flip to the "This Is Pop?" single. It's really fun, particularly if you know the XTC songs, to listen and figure out what songs were originally what, but I also just love listening to this stuff as individual pieces in their own right. This album's a little hard to find now, but it's DEFINITELY worth picking up, whether or not you're already an XTC fan. (But if you ARE and XTC fan, you might want to get Drums & Wires, Go 2 and White Music first if you don't have those already. And Rag & Bone Buffet too, as that's got one or two sources on it as well, AND it's got "Over Rusty Water", a dub version of "Snowman". And the "Down In The Cockpit" dance remix.) - Rev.
