Regarding the XTC appearence on Late Night:

	Y'all should be aware that Dave almost never talks with the
featured musical guests on the show.  There are exceptions, but not
many.

	Are you kidding? Those live acoustic performances beat the
living shit out of anything on the thoroughly over-produced and
homogonized 'Oranges and Lemons'. They're XTC the way they should
sound, with the rough vocals and the less-than-perfect performances,
but with *feeling*.

Greetings from Little Rock, Arkansas (a cultural metropolis!?)

OBSCURE TRIVIA DEPT. - A friend and I have an ongoing argument over
"The Big Express".  I think they used a live drummer for at least some
of the album while my friend insists that a drum machine was used for
most, if not all, of the album.  Anybody out there have any info about
this?

Thanks!

There is a Go Too CD (1984) that is seperate from the GO"2 CD.  What is on it?
