Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

XTC - Black Sea - Album

Black Sea is an XTC album released on 12 September 1980.

It spawned five singles—'Generals And Majors' (released 9th August 1980 and reached Number 32 on the UK singles chart and Number 104 on the Billboard Pop chart), 'Towers Of London' (released 10th October 1980 and reached Number 31 on the UK singles chart), 'Sgt. Rock (Is Going To Help Me)' (released 5th December 1980 and reached Number 16 on the UK singles chart), 'Love At First Sight' (released 23rd January 1981 in Canada only) and a re-recording of 'Respectable Street' (released 13th March 1981). The band re-recorded the song to change a few words as per the BBC—who ended up never playing the clean version anyway.

The album reached Number 16 on the UK album chart, Number 41 on the Billboard U.S. Hot 100 album chart and Number 1 on the New Zealand album chart.

Considered one of the more consistent albums by the group, Black Sea is more refined and polished than its predecessor, Drums and Wires, although it is still focused on big drums and sharp guitars. Early copies of the album came with the sleeve enclosed in a lime-green paper bag. There was an additional version that came packaged in a black plastic bag with the XTC logo in silver printed on one side.

Virgin media mogul Richard Branson appeared in the 'Generals and Majors' video.
