This weekend I saw XTC on MTV's "The Week In Rock"
They questioned Andy about the student who held his
principal hostage while he played "Dear God" over the school PA.
Andy replied by saying something like, "Dear God must have been able to
say what the student could not crystalize in his own thoughts. And, anyway,

I shouldn't say that, I supose."

They played about 15 seconds of a song I've never heard before, though.
Also they played about 60 seconds of Scarecrow People.

Good performance, wish they had done the entire set...

the American public...Just shows to go ya what can be done when the
company stands behind a group!

someone imitating WA - but an anonymous caller with a voice like
