I love XTC and the idea is brilliant for a local famous bands song playing pre game etc but I am not sure if any XTC songs are upbeat enough to give the crowd a lift before the game if I am honest.

I'm not so sure.  'Senses Working Overtime' would work really well over the tannoy.  Quiet intro section, but with a good beat nevertheless.  Then you get a sudden lift with the 'And all the world is football shaped' bit, and then it kicks on again with the chorus.  Some of that (but not all, I know) is quite singable.  And even if no one does join in, I think it would fit in just fine at 2.50pm in the build up.

And there are others.

"Senses" is a cracking pop song and probably would fit the bill best of all the songs of theirs, gotta be better than what we have now anyway.

Instead of music playing when we score, why not a blast from the old railway hooter.

I think that is one idea that most would agree with.

Sounds like Mex after a few beers and a jalfrezi.

Nice to see some love for XTC on here. The wife wants to move to Swindon because of her love for Andy & Colin. Although Red Brick Dream is the only track to mention Swindon Town directly, a lot of other tracks are written about the town - Ermine Street is mentioned in Chalkhills & Children, I Remember The Sun is based on Colin's childhood memories of Penhill (I think), English Roundabout is obviously inspired by the magic roundabout...

Generals and Majors would be quite good, no doubt someone like Si Pie or jayohaitchenn can come up with an excellent song to go along with it.

Another Swindon connection would be this...

Ball and Chain is about the house in Read St. (I think) where the family refused to move while they knocked down the houses around them. Don't think we'd get away with "No Thugs In Our House".

Strange fact, that I'm sure could be discovered by someone searching hard online, but Orbital's "The Brown Album" was recorded, in part, if not in full, at Meat Manifesto's house on Dixon Street. (My mate lived on Dixon Street and knew the bloke.)
