Film At 11: The Dukes Of Stratosphear

The Dukes Of Stratosphear was the moniker XTC went by in the mid-’80s for two records it made that celebrated psychedelic rock from the ’60s. Both LPs, 1985’s 25 O’Clock and 1987’s Psonic Psunspot, have been collected—along with other goodies, such as a jigsaw puzzle—as The Complete And Utter Dukes Box Set (Ape), a limited-edition, purple-cloth-covered box. Here’s the video for “You’re A Good Man Albert Brown (Curse You Red Barrel),” from Psonic Psunspot. For an amazing story involving XTC frontman Andy Partridge having sex with a rubber shark, read our 2007 Q&A with him.
