Hello everyone

As I was sitting here listening to the KROC Acoustic Tour/Interview CD that
I have, I was thinking about how lucky the DJ and assorted KROC staff were
to witness this event.  There couldn't have been more than 3 or 4 people
there besides the band... and it got me thinking:

Does anyone know what the largest concert (crowd of people) XTC has played
in front of?

Thanks in advance,


In Rotation:

Curve- The Way of Curve 1990/2004
Paul Weller- More Wood (Little Splinters)
Scissor Sisters- Self Titled
Amores Perros Soundtrack
and of course... lots of XTC

and no, i did NOT have any 'inside knowledge' about this particular
event. I know that Dave is the biggest Beach Boys / Brian Wilson fan
of all the (ex) members so that was an easy guess. And from there its
just a small step of course to 'fourth Duke' and brother Ian G.
Blood being thicker than water and all that...

As ever yours in xtc,

Howdy Chalkfolk. Another longtime listmember out for a delurk for a
brief moment, with a funny story.

I went out with the family to a local mall wearing my trusty
Chalkhorse shirt. Standing outside a "girls store" that I let my wife
enter without me, a man pointed to me and said, "English Settlement?"
Once I picked my jaw up off the floor, I said, "Yes it is. I feel
validated." "And Chalkhills would be a fan club?" "Sorta. Go to
Chalkhills dot org for the site."

Man and I had a conversation -- he, being about 20 years older than
me, explained how he missed out on seeing XTC and The Jam live in New
York when Andy cancelled the show. I didn't want to tell him that my
parents wouldn't have let me into the city on a school night. But as
he left he said, "Thanks for the memory trip. Dot org, right?"

That made my weekend.

Franz Ferdinand and Modest Mouse wear XTC proudly on their collective
sleeve. Both have great new CD's. I personally like MM a little better
because you can heard Tom Waits' influence.

Hi all
I recently bought last year's Primus release. XTC is mentioned in the
liner notes.
Its a collection of all their videos and a cd of new material as well!
those of you who haven't heard Primus and like the earlier xtc might
want to give it a chance: the lively art rock. I think of it as drums
and wires meets a metallic captain beefheart.

i once had an ice cube
her name was Mary
my chilly little ice cube
now she's gone
doesn't nothing ever last forever?
