(The Dukes Of Stratosphere - aka XTC - a side excursion into psychedelia)

In 1985 XTC took up a side project, calling themselves The Dukes Of Stratosphere, putting together an almost note perfect homage to the heady musical form known as Psychedelia. It managed to fool a few people at the time - so much so the success of their first endeavor "Twenty-Five O'clock" was followed by "Psonic Psunspot". Of course by then everyone was in on the joke, but it was too good to be dismissed. They were actually really good at it.

This track, off of "Twenty-five O'clock" was a cheeky take-off on "I Am The Walrus" called The Mole From The Ministry.
