Hi:

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (http://www.myspace.com/xtcfans), the
song of the week is "Greenman," in honor of special guest Prairie
Prince, who remembers what it was like recording the Apple Venus
albums with the band.

If you want to know which song he recorded totally jet-lagged, or how
Teletubbies and Marmite figured into each day, check out the XTCfans
blog site at:
http://blog.myspace.com/xtcfans

Please to dance round for the one called the Greenman
Dressed in the fruits of the wild

-Todd

Hello Fellow Hillers!  Or Chalkers!  Or Stalkers (and you know who you
are...)

It's been a long time since my last post.  Thank you for your warm
welcome.

In that time, I've taken some mighty good video of The Dukes of
Simpleton show near Austin, Texas.  I'd like to post it for your
viewing pleasure if that's all right.  Our own Joe Funk and Chris
Vreeland are among the members of this esteemed group of hep cats.

Also, I'd like to announce that our daughter, who grew up listening to
XTC, etc., is now studying music at the Berklee College of Music.  Her
band, Chasing Blue, is doing very well and has not one, but TWO
SHOWCASES at the upcoming International Bluegrass Music Association
festival in Nashville this fall.  They've also entered The Sound and
the Jury competition for a spot in the Austin City Limits Festival.
They could use YOUR VOTE, if you were so inclined:
http://delllounge.com/soundandthejury/Chasing-Blue/default.aspx

You can vote up to once per day through August 28th.

Thanks so much,
Jill

Hi:

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (http://www.myspace.com/xtcfans), the
song of the week is "Scissor Man."

If you want to know how Steve Ditko influenced the song, or why Andy
thinks "it's the daftest song we've ever had," check out the XTCfans
blog site at http://blog.myspace.com/xtcfans.

When you wake up guilty in the morning
You may find important pieces gone

I just found this online:

Warner Archives, the dvd on demand service that reissues old movies,
will be releasing Urgh! A Music War.  Don't know the date, but
hopefully soon.
