Hi Chalkhillianists (and John R of course) -

A while back I asked for suggestions about what XTC video to use on
my blog. I got a couple suggestions on Chalkhills and also some via
email. I finally decided what video to use. Thanks for the help to
those who made suggestions. If you are curious, check my blog and
scroll down a bit to see what XTC video I used:

Hey, maybe even leave me a comment?

Thanks! In XTC we trust...

Sorry to use up bandwith on peripheral matters, but I'd just like to
priase mightily the new Beatles reissues and hope the new XTC
remasters (they ARE coming, RIGHT?) are just as good, though i cannot
truly imagine the smae revelations (Hearing John spit out 'Shoot Me!'
on the verses of 'Come Together' for the first time sent a frisson
down my spine!)

Nextly, I'm hoping Becki DiGregario is out there (or a friend): BEcki,
I've lost both your mailing and email addresses... Please get in
touch, would you?

OK, Ryan Anthony...since you 12 y.o. daughter and I are driving
down the road and she plugs in her ipod and subjects me to Miley Cyrus ( who
had just released a new album) and her song "Fly on the Wall", I convinced
her to listen to MY version of Fly on he Wall, (the Swindon version) to
which she hands down admitted was way superior...that felt in the
car she always steers my ipod to Fly, Everything will be Allright and life
on Mars by Bowie...signing off...keep the flame alive...Jack

Just a short notice to Simon Deane. The humorous ending of "Up On Hi"
is not Andy. It's actually Jen Olive with a slow downed voice.

And yes, it is a great song from the download EP "Trick Picture". The
new EP "Hard Listening" is also superb and kicks of with "My Dream
Sea" which also features Jen Olive. Second song  "Running With The
Mothmen" is Barry Andrews running wild...

Have a great 2010, everyone! Cheers, Per Aronsson.

Sure, the most interesting thing that I have come across in the 2000 decade
are Mashup songs, and XTC has a few rhythm sections being used by Mark
Making Plans For Vinyl (Tweet vs XTC)was particularly satisfying when
turning friends on to XTC who were already impressed by such songs.

Here's to Twenty Ten!

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (, the
song of the week is "The Man Who Sailed Around His Soul."

If you want to know what songs (other than "Mack the Knife") that Andy
was channeling when he wrote this, or who in the band excels at
finger-clicks, check out the XTCfans blog site at

Now he sits all alone
Knowing flesh, blood and bone
Is everything...
