The Three Wise Men – Thanks for Christmas
Thanks for Christmas – b/w Countdown to Christmas (what does b/w stand for – backed with?). Was the 1983 XTC Xmas single released under pseudonym The Three Wise Men.

TGL may not have interrupted his busy seasonal schedule and pitched in on production if he’d known XTC would return the favour by recording Dear God two years later.
