Making plans for Nigel - XTC

XTC's 'Making plans for Nigel' reached number 32 in the Dutch Top 40 in 1979. It fared better in the UK, where it reached number 17. The video of this song impressed me greatly when I was a child; it made me remember the band and this single for years on end. I didn't buy the single, so I spent years searching for it. I finally found it during a holiday in the UK.

My collection: 7" single no. 2695
Found: Beanos, East Croydon, London, July 3, 1996
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Making plans for Nigel' / 'Bushman president', 'Pulsing pulsing'
