XTC were notoriously furious with Todd Rundgren’s excellent production. I’ve never known the details, and always been curious.

I just happened upon Game Theory/Loud Family leader Scott Miller’s collection of erudite capsule reviews of his favourite songs from 1957 to 2006. I found tonnes to disagree with here taste-wise (natch) but, taken as a whole, it was a really fun and illuminating read. Read the whole collection here.

Interesting tidbit: both Michael Quercio of The Three O’Clock

and Mitch Easter (of Let’s Active) produced and played on Game Theory records.
