According to, "Brain Damage" features

Colin Moulding (vocals)
Robbie Krieger (sitar, guitars)
Geoff Downes (keyboards)
Vinnie Colaiuta (drums)
Del Palmer (bass)
Michael Sherwood, Billy Sherwood (backing vocals)

But Colin also plays bass on "Time":

Gary Green (vocals, guitars)
Billy Sherwood (vocals, organ, piano)
Robbie Krieger (sitar)
David Sancious (Rhodes)
Alan White (rototoms)
Jay Schellen (drums)
Colin Moulding (bass)
Michael Sherwood, C.C. White (backing vocals)

I haven't heard "Time".  I suppose I really ought to buy the CD, but I
can hardly stand to listen to Dark Side as it is...  It's Animals for
me, please.

Critters Buggin
Black Frames
plenty of room to explore this family of musicians

found them last year... haven't stopped listening...
even find myself impulse purchasing plane tickets to see them
could be a cocktail of mid life crisis and too many credit cards

I would highly recommend if you have not already checked out Sufjan
Stevens.  His albums...

"Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lake State"
"Illinois" and
"The Avalanche: Outtakes & Extras from the Illinois Album"

...are all excellent.  His songs are smartly written, some very
complex and orchestral, others very simple and touching.  Kind of
difficult to describe his genre but good stuff for sure.

Just a minor point, and an anal one admittedly, but Apple Studios closed in
the mid 70s, when Apple Corps decamped from 3, Savile Row. I believe Holly
and co have been working at Abbey Road - still an awesome place but with XTC
connections as well as Beatle ones of course.

I see the girls are in Bristol quite a bit over the coming weeks. Will have
to try and catch them.

It is many aeons since I last contributed to the digest but I can assure
you guys that I read it religiously (or should that be secularly?)
whenever it comes out.

Anyway, I notice that Aaron wants some recommendations and I couldn't
resist boring on about some music that I currently like:

1. The Delgados - try "Hate" or the "Great Eastern" (or something like
that). Shame they're Scottish.
2. Anything by Jim White - he of alt-country fame. His latest cd
"Transnormal Skiperoo" is fine but the first two - "Wrong-eyed Jesus" or
"No Such Place" - are probably the best place to start with Jim.
3. Hellwood's "Chainsaw of Life" - an alt-country "supergroup" featuring
Jim (above), Johnny Dowd and A N Other. Johnny Dowd is one interesting
customer. Check out the first song ("Thank you Lord" or something like
that) which has Johnny thanking Jesus for the "hurricane" amongst other
things. Reminded me immediately of something put out by XTC a few years

Don't be put off by the country references.

Best wishes to all

Simon Deane

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (, the
song of the week is "This Is Pop."

If you want to know which guitar legend Andy was "disassembling" in
his leads on the song, or what he *really* wants for his birthday,
check out the XTCfans blog site at

What do you call that noise that you put on?
This is Pop!
