	Alright I give up.  Who said "We are all drowning in a black sea of
love and war", and did XTC use it as the basis for _Black Sea_?  It makes
sense that they would since most of the songs are about either love or war.
The album as a whole would really make sense if they did.

	A while ago, somebody make the observation of these images
	in the "Mayor of Simpleton" video: "Barry the Car", "Terry
	the Fish"...

	Does anyone have any real documentation that says why Barry
	and Terry left?  I've heard all kinds of theories, some of
	which are pretty obvious (not touring, in Terry's case; not
	enough songs on records, in Barry's), but have Andy or
	Colin ever come right out and given any reasons?  Or Barry
	and/or Terry, for that matter?

	On a "Barry" note, has anyone heard what he's doing now?
	The last Shriekback album (_Go Bang_) was (IMHO) really lousy, at
	least compared to _Big Night Music_ (which I've always felt was
	the photographic-negative-image of _Skylarking_), although the
	clubs and college stations had a ball with "Get Down Tonight"
	and "Intoxication."

	Any ideas?
