The Passage

The Passage were a post-punk band from Manchester, UK who appeared on several record labels including Cherry Red Records and their own label Night & Day.

Although they never truly broke into the mainstream, their most successful song was ‘XOYO’ which came 41st in John Peel’s Festive Fifty for 1982, which was the top 50 songs of the year as voted by the listeners. The song was an experiment to see whether John Cage’s method of aleatoric composition could be successfully applied to popular music composition.
