i am a longtime fan from los angeles.

i simply would like to suggest an idea that i feel would make natural
sense and would possibly preserve the brilliant music they have made
for the last 20 years or so.

An XTC musical!HUH?
there are so many songs that could work to make up a really kool
i'm not even one for musicals myself but i can see this glaringly clear.

Maybe called the Mayor of simpleton or venus and
skylarking have so many songs that would work.ofcourse the other
albums have tons of great songs that could work as wll but to me
those two have a lot of connection yet different.both have songs that
seem perfectly suited.

think about "but i can't own her" thats a scene out of a classic
movie.definetelly cinematic.

enough of my rambling.
if it is possible to pass this idea on to Andy and colin great other
wise just and idea i needed to get out my head.
far fetched maybe.
hope not.

thanks much,miles tackett

Well, I broke down and bought Jason Falkner's new album, which somehow still
isn't available in the US, and the very first track is arguably the best pop
song of the last 10 years.

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.

Here's a link to my rejected pitch for Continuum's 33 1/3 series on
*Chips from the Chocolate Fireball*:

They also deep-sixed three seperate *Skylarking* proposals and one
for *English Settlement* - does anyone have access to those?

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (, the
song of the week is "All of a Sudden (It's Too Late)."

If you want to know what the band's new "toys" were on this album, or
which '60s single influenced some of his singing on the song, check
out the XTCfans blog site at

I have put up a Mice Pace page for King For A Day.  It goes "live" on
September 1, 2007.

I will rotate the songs out periodically (once a month right now but
more frequently when more people visit).

Starting around the first of the year, I would like to reserve one song
space for XTC cover songs that are not on King For A Day.  So, contact
me if you have something to contribute.

If you contributed to any of the XTC tributes that I produced (all of
which are included on the King For A Day mp3 CD) and have a MySpace
page, let me know and I will post a link to your page when your song is

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the King For A Day mp3 CD
(140+ songs!), send me a message.

One more for the gallery of empty chairs on album
covers, then I'll stop flogging this wounded horse:
*Ride The Lightning* by Metallica.

Song currently worming its way into my head and
becoming a favorite: "I Don't Want To Be Here," from
Stamp Album Vols. 2 and 8.
