Talk:25 O'Clock

From This Might Be A Wiki

I would just like to say that this is a fantastic cover. -J2

Just to add, the XTC version of this song is from the Dukes of Stratosphear 25 O'Clock EP, which as an XTC fan I've never even seen a copy of, making it rare even for an XTC song. Which makes a great cover of it (like this one) even more fantastic!

You can always get the Chips From The Chocolate Fireball "best of" CD for the Dukes-- it has that EP plus Psonic Sunspots together. And that's not rare, at least, it was available on Amazon for normalish price. ~ magbatz 02:31, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Ah. Well I feel silly. I have Psonic Psunspot on vinyl - I never checked to see if it was on CD. This TMBG cover is still way cool.

I have both the original and this cover on my iPod, and I honestly have to say that I prefer this one and it has a tendency to get stuck in my head. ~Anna Ng hears your words. 07:27, 1 August 2007 (UTC)


Saying it's by Sir John Johns is like saying Andy Partridge only. If we're going for pseudonyms, should we not say Dukes Of Stratosphere? -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 01:35, 6 November 2010

He was the writer of the song. --veggieman 01:38, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
We don't single out the johns. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 01:39, 6 November 2010
Hm. --veggieman 01:44, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
that would be because they are never credited singly. it always just say "they might be giants." not standard music industry practice. -- 01:55, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Love the wildness of the keyboard solo, but especially the way it trails off mathematically (perhaps the gaps between the notes are spaced according to Fibonacci intervals) which is just Linnell all over. --Nehushtan (talk) 12:45, 3 September 2013 (EDT)
