Yes, folks, it's finally here: The First Chalkhills Survey.  You

everybody know what your favourite (and least favourite) XTC songs,
albums, and videos are.

Send your answers and opinions to "<>",
and make sure to set the subject of your message to "XTC SURVEY".
The deadline for the survey is 30 November 1989.

that QCD comp was issued (on CD !) in December 1986 in the UK.  Did Skylarking
make it out before or after the new year in the UK ?  As I recall, US copies
escaped (to NO fanfare) shortly before Xmas 86.

I may have asked this question before, but does anybody have any idea
what the background vocals are in the second chorus of "The Loving"
starting at about two minutes into the song?
