Harvest Festival by XTC

“Andy: “As a kid, I had no idea what the harvest festival ceremony at school was supposed to be about. This bizarre mix of Christianity, paganity, help the Aged, a jumble sale and fridge raid, all seem to crash together (with schoolboy lust interest) in the lyrics of this song." #XTCDay #JamWhileWeCan #LastJams #GoingDownJamming

Stuck in my head this morning. Odd. Haven't heard this in years.
