Not necessarily.

But it does suggest you're spending too much time in your car.

I "pushed my car from the road" some 20 years ago.

You may not be ready to do that yet ... but do listen to what
Andy is saying:

  Take a packet of seeds, take yourself out to play
  I want to see a river of orchids where we had a motorway
  Push your car from the road
  Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
  It's all in your back yard
  You've the whole world at your feet
  Said the grass is always greener when it bursts up through concrete
  River of orchids winding our way
  Want to walk into London on my hands one day
  River of orchids the road overgrows
  Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose
  I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil

Subject: Album Of The Week

Dear Chalkers,

Just a short note to let you all know that AV1 is this weeks Album Of
The Week in the prominent "Denk Aan Henk" show on the national Dutch
pop radio station. They'll play another album track every day at
around 1 pm - that's is a lot of prime time exposure for our Heroes

I feel that those who have already given up on this album may have
been  a bit premature - it could very well be another "slow burner"
just like Skylarking. It took a while (and Dear God) for that one too
and we all know that XTC is an acquired taste. You have to put in an
effort to (fully) appreciate it.

BTW: i must admit that the choice for Easter Theatre as the first UK
(and Euro?) single has me baffled a bit. I know Andy would never even
consider doing anything that could be deemed "commercial" but surely
E.T. is not the song that will lure the punters in - or is it?

I'd say that it is one of the more "difficult" songs on the album,
both musically and lyrically, and very euh... challenging for the
average 15 year old. Don't get me wrong, i love the song to bits!

i just have a hard time seeing this single sell beyond the rather
small circle of XTC completists and totally anal types like yours
truly, who now has twelve (12) copies of AV1 and is still looking for
a copy of the UK advance cd.

PS: Easter Theatre has already taken some flak for being "another
crass attempt to cash in on Jesus Christ" or words to that effect.
Can't these stoopid people listen to the lyrics? It is not
about the Jewish or Christian Easter at all but filled with pagan
imagery and symbolism.

And it's a bit rich to blame XTC for cashing in: after all it was
the Christian church that "absorbed" those old pagan rituals and
symbols it couldn't eradicate. Hares, rabbits and eggs are age old
fertility symbols predating any organized religion. And where did
that Xmas tree come from? Bethlehem? i think not...

yours in xtc,

Mark Strijbos at The Little Lighthouse

Message-ID: <Pine.SOL.4.00.9903222045490.632-100000@esun1006>


First, thanks to whoever it was who pointed out the Smile
page. I downloaded the MP3s, changed them to CD audio format,
cleaned 'em up a bit, and that new CD-R has displaced Apple Venus
in my player for the time being. This sounds good! (Anyone want
a copy? Let me know soon as I'll be needing the disk space...)

Secondly, I was puzzled by the lack of interest in my "contest",
which was a play on "find the next album title in this one". AV1
seems to contain hints of *previous* album titles; I offered
    Oranges and Lemons <- Apples and Pears
    Skylarking <- Gamboling
So either I've already exhausted the topic, or no one saw what
I was getting at. Who knows, some decent submissions and maybe
I'll offer a prize or two!

Thirdly, some people have been puzzled by the Englishisms
on Apple Venus 1. I've been more puzzled by some of those
which were conspicuously absent. "Form that line right here"
from "The Last Balloon" is very obvious; isn't the English
thing to say "Form that queue..."? There's another striking
example which escapes me just now...

Fourthly: Mark, in your recent contest, nine people got
perfect scores; I'd be interested in the names of the four
who didn't win, as well as a statistical breakdown on the
rest of the entrants...

Lastly, I'm pleased to report some success in XTC conversions.
The three copies of AV1 I gifted upon my closest friends have
resulted in at least two additional AV1 purchases (the other
friend simply duped a copy for his car; also a good sign!)

I bawled my eyes out when Terry Kath(guitarist in Chicago) shot himself.  I
was a huge fan of the band at the time(1978).  He was a fabulous player, by
the way.

My choice for a tune for XTC to play in my living room?  First I was going
to say that it would be too heartbraking to have just one tune, but I
suppose one short moment of bliss is better than none at all.  So my pick
would be Books Are Burning, with a coupla stipulations: Dave has to play
guitar, so him and Andy can duke it out at the end.  That means we'll need
an organ player, so Barry, come on down!  And, short pop tunes be damned,
the duelling has to go on for at least oh, 10 minutes.  Hey, I want that
bliss to go on as long as possible!

Outside of downright repetition, how we could get the boys to play
1 song for as long as possible?

Too bad I don't have a photographic memory or I'd be able to recount all

them in his book, along with fake band names to go with them. Knights in
Shining Karma was one of the band names by the way.  Another song that
surely exists is called "I'm The Kaiser" which Andy sang a bit for

Subject: Orchoustic Suggestion

I just recently got a Scott Walker best-of, "It's Raining Today, The
Scott Walker Story (1967-70)" on the US Razor & Tie label, which was
compiled by Marshall Crenshaw (remember him?) and Robert Kemp.

Getting this just a couple weeks after AV1, I was surprised to hear
the "Orchoustic" sound again.  I only got into Scott Walker after
reading a positive review of his "Tilt" album back in 1995 when it
came out.  That album is totally bonkers, but I love it.  "Tilt" bears
only fleeting resemblence to Walker's 60's output.  It's mostly an
industrial dirge.

Surprise, surprise on the compilation to hear glorious strings,
acoustic guitar, only occasionally a beat, and a truly wonderful
voice.  What a crooner.  This is the late 60's, but the subject matter
is bizarre: full of songs about transvestites, weird neighbors, Army
induction, Joseph Stalin, and some really oddball country stuff
towards the end of the disc (right when his career nosedived).  Just
hear the creepy, hovering strings on the title track to know what I'm
talking about.

Just a few months ago I heard "Pet Sounds" for the first time in full
(I know, kick me...) and this Scott Walker album had an even bigger
affect on me.  Check it out if you dare....

LOL!! Funny, because I feel exactly the opposite... I got the demos a
few weeks before the official release (I tried to resist them, but a
friend handed them to me...), and when I heard the studio version of
Greenman, I was semi-let down...
I wish that:
1. The original "cheesy" synth-oboe had been left in, &
2. It had run through the whole song more predominantly.

To me, it's what carried the song through the demo version, and without
it, it just becomes a little tedious to me after 4 or 5 minutes...
I think the "real" opening blows in comparison to the demo.

Just my opinion, of course...

Hi, everyone!

A fellow Talking Heads fan on this list tipped me off to my
embarrassing mixup:  David Byrne ran in place in the studio
to record "Drugs," off of "Fear of Music"(1979), and not "Psycho
Killer".  Or as P.W. put it, "The esteemed Mr. Byrne's vocals
on PK (and everything else up to Remain In Light) are best
attributed to nerves!"

The sourcebook for this info in the first place is "Talking Heads"
by "Jerome Davis"[a pseudonym; anyone know for whom?].

Extremely spurious XTC content:  many or most of TH's songs
were published by the "Bleu Disque Music Co.".  Andy Partridge
would, of course, later record "Disque Bleu".

I don't recall if there's any mention of XTC in the book, which I
read several times in the '80's.  Probably not.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to come out of the woodwork to say a couple of things:

1.  I just wanted to re-state that this is the greatest site in the world.
The amount of work necessary to keep Chalkhills together must be
tremendous, but it is consistently an amazing site. Kudos!

2.  I have been re-confirmed in the notion that XTC fans are the greatest
in the world.  I have been trading various XTC-related items with folks
from this list.  And, I must say that I am constantly surprised by the
generosity of all of you.  Specifically I'd like to thank Steve Bannister,
Bruce Bubier & James Roberts.  These aren't the only folks who have been
generous, but they are the most recent.  And, they have gone "above &
beyond" in making this XTC fan happy.  Thanks again!!

3.  My earlier negative impressions of AV1 are long gone.  I now love the
album (although I agree that it should be a little longer).  Best songs:
Easter Theatre, Harvest Festival, Your Dictionary, Frivolous Tonight.

Fripp with ProjecKt 3 last night(as well as in '79 on his
Frippertronics tour). From the ET discography:

The Damned
Fun Factory

   12": 1990      UK Deltic (Platinum) DELT 7T
    C5: 1990      UK Deltic DELT 7C
                Fun Factory

Xtc content - I sure end up humming Supergirl alot after listening
to AV1.

Look, my Australian mate Pete who lived in London and got chucked
out in 1983 for overstaying his Visa welcome - by two years - is
responsible for the whole Hanoi Rocks thing as I was involved
with the bugger when he got tickets and we went together. Twice.
He also got me into Echo and Costello so he wasn't all bad.

Anyway - he just emailed me the following.  He lives in Adelaide

"Oh yeah - Three D (community radio) made "Apple Venus 1" album of the week
recently, so I heard a fair bit of it. Like all their stuff, it's good, but
doesn't really grab me."

Bye for now
