XTC - The Big Express: Wikipedia Album Entry

XTC's seventh album, First album without Terry Chambers on drums. Originally released in 1984, Andy Partridge describes this album as "A loco derailing itself in the rusty goods yard. An altogether more industrial affair. Slashing electric guitars, sheets of steel bass and diesel oil drums. An iron opera, steam powered and brick encased.”
