Yo, Hill!

Ben Gott rocks! Check out his new album!

I just had a collegial teacher to teacher visit to his classroom,
which is decorated with a rather nice framed Nonsuch XTC work of art.

Go Ben!

This post is going to mercifully short and bullet pointed because I'm
home sick today and need to crawl back in bed IMMEDIATELY.

1)  Andy's APE label has signed a new singer/songwriter named Jen
Olive.  You need to go to her website before you do anything else and
listen to a song called "WIreWire":

[ ]

It's kind of like Cocteau Twins meets The Story as channeled through
the songwriting of Jason Falkner.  Her APE debut is definitely going
to be something to write home about.

2)  The Milk and Honey Band is also coming out with a new album which
you can pre-order and download right now.  It's absolutely delicious:

[ ]

3)  Ian C Stewart (hi, Ian!) turned me on to a band called Le Concorde
today.  They're working with David Gamson, and the first thing I
thought upon hearing this song was, "How nice that someone found a
lost Scritti Politti album from 1985!"

[ ]

I actually spent some quality Internet time this morning trying to
figure out if the guy in the video was, in fact, Green Gartside.  (He
isn't, but he IS!  Seriously.  Listen.)

4)  My new album is dedicated to Green Gartside.  Want to buy it?

[ ]

Back under the covers!

This is a legitimate question for the citizens of Chalkhillia because
of Todd Rundgren's "two Hitlers in the same bunker" connection to XTC

Where might the long version of "Bang On The Drum All Day" be found?

Not the three-minutes-and-change edit, but the
at-Gene-Krupa's-wake extended cut.

P.S.: Happy 100th, Gene. Sorry I'm a month late. Hey, I'm not the
timekeeper you were.

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (, the
song of the week is "Dear Madam Barnum."

If you want to know why Andy thinks Dave Gregory should change his
name, or who the grandparents of Mrs. Barnum are, check out the
XTCfans blog site at

You said I was the master of all I surveyed
But now I'm sweeping up, the last in line in your circus parade...
