An alter ego of XTC, this group was a vehicle for Andy Partridges psychedelic frustrations of being born a decade or two out of time. Both albums the group released contained brilliant pastiches of virtually every pop band of the mid to late 60s period. In many cases the Dukes tongue-in-cheek parables were far superior to the songs to which they gently alluded. It was suggested that their albums actually outsold the XTC product available at the same time.
