XTC - Explode Together: The Dub Experiments 1978-1980 (1990)

A CD reissue of XTC's Go+ EP (packaged free with initial copies of the Go 2 album in the U.K.) and Take Away/The Lure of Savage, an album initially credited to Mr. Partridge, Explode Together: The Dub Experiments 1978-1980 is one of those albums that's more interesting in theory than it is in practice. The idea of an album of songs based on rhythms from the Go 2 and Drums and Wires albums, "shattered and reprocessed" by Andy Partridge, sounds like it could be really fascinating. In actuality, the songs on Explode Together are really quite dull, neither good as dub nor good as instrumental rock. Partridge seems to have added to and subtracted from the original recordings rather randomly, adding entirely new sets of vocals to "The Rotary" and "Cairo" and throwing new instrumental tracks onto the rhythms willy-nilly. As a result, listening to Explode Together is kinda interesting. Once. When speaking of these songs in interviews, Partridge seems mildly befuddled as to why he thought they were a good idea in the first place.
