Hello All...

It's been nearly three years since I subscribed to the ol' Chalkhills
Digest, and I've been having some XTC withdrawal symptoms as of late,
so I thought I'd sign myself back up. Nice to see it's still going
strongly.

Just thought I'd let everyone know that there is now an XTC newsgroup
(alt.music.xtc) which I started some time ago.  It is mostly dormant
right now, so I thought maybe anyone who's interested in posting
XTC-related stories/images/audio files/wallpapers...what-have-you -
could drop by and say Hi!

Like I said, very little there at the moment, but maybe we can get
something going....

If your news carrier doesn't have it (some don't), Google Groups does,
at least the last time I noticed.

Cheerio!

OK, what I'm finding here is that there are others on
this list besides myself who have very eclectic and
sometimes unusual tastes. John Relph likes Sergio
Mendes? me too! Darryl likes Shonen Knife, Yoko Ono,
and Tiny Tim? I have several discs by each of them.
And I have The Transformrd Man as well.

After years of being the ONLY kid in the small
mid-Michigan town I grew up in who was even remotely
intersted in new wave/punk, I've become pretty
thick-skinned about the music I like. The only thing
in my collection I would find slightly embarassing is
Abba Gold, but I got that for free when I worked in a
record store, so it's not like I paid money for it!

John Relph's short list of music to drive people away
is interesting,although I like everything on his list!
Can be fairly easy if you tailor it to the people you
want to leave.  When working at the record store, we
would have fun with this. Putting on Karlheinz
Stockhausen's Music for Shortwave Radios when there
were 500 people in line to buy Garth Brooks concert
tickets, that sort of thing.
During the holiday season, I could empty a busy store
at closing time by putting the barking dogs version of
Jingle Bells on repeat. By the third time through, the
store would be empty!
I myself have broken up parties by playing Trout Mask
Replica and John Zorn at top volume. The universal
guarenteed room emptier in my collection, however, is
the Japanese noise band The Gerogeregegege. Even I
find it unlistenable, which is why I've kept it
around, actually.

hey gang, shameless plug time . . . and it's not even about live music,
but it can be enjoyed this world over.

After a failed attempt at setting up an MP3 webstreamer out of my
guestroom, I've taken the advice of a friend and signed up radio
hidebound with www.live365.com.  One can tune in at
http://www.live365.com/stations/hidebound .  Radio hidebound currently
has around eight hours of music streaming before it begins to repeat.
No more than one song by any musician, except for blokes in multiple
bands like Adrian Belew (solo, King Crimson, the Bears).  The current
XTC song loaded is my current fave, "Seagulls Screaming Kiss Her Kiss
Her".

It's a fairly eclectic mix (shocker!), but centers around college radio
1981-88.  The last few songs played have been:

The Teardrop Explodes - Poppies in the Field
Depeche Mode - Leave in Silence
Martha and the Muffins - Sins of Children
k.d. lang - Miss Chatelaine
Blue Oyster Cult - Nosferatu
Siouxie and the Banshees - Cities in Dust
Chris Stamey & Peter Holsapple - She Was the One

yeah, Blue Oyster Cult.  Without any embarrassment, I might add.  So tune
in if you have a few minutes (high bandwidth recommended) and let me know
what you think.

If anyone else here has one of these things running, please let me (us)
know how to find it.

cheers.kah

I have called myself the Queen of Cheesey Music.  I don't have any guitly
pleasures and I'd show off all my CDs that I have.  My favorite "guilty
pleasures" that I love are:

ABBA
Cliff Richard
Olivia Newton-John
Cleine Dion
Bette Midler
Duran Duran
Spandau Ballet
Andrew Lloyd Weber (I LOVE The Phantom of the Opera and Jusus Christ
Cuperstar, and if anything has a problem with that, well :p)
Carly Simon (I was born a Carly Simon fan, since my parents named me after
her, my middle name is Carlie.  It's spelled differently, but that's who I'm
named after.)
Tom Jones
The Bee Gees

I could go on and on, but there wouldn't be enough room for the whole list.
:P

Sorry for my protracted absynth from these here parts, I trust I find
you all well. Good.

  A couple issues back, Phil Corless asked:

>Supposed you are hosting a Chalkhills party.  Everyone on this list will be

I suppose if it was just the regular riff-raff, I'd just put up the
Queensryche "Operation Mindcrime."

But if Harrison Sherwood was going to be there, I'm afraid I'd hustle
away everything except my bootleg Beachboys Smile, the Kings Great
Lost Album, and maybe Snakefinger.

The Sting and the Fine Young Cannibals would be right out. Plus, I
wouldn't want any of you to know just how much Fleetwood Mac I have.
Oops,

Chris

           Wow!   That is pretty cheap for cd prices.  Although, i've heard
some CDs are now selling as "50 cent".

In his Milano concert of may 10th Joe Jackson performed a cover version
of Major of Simpleton by our beloved ones. Extremely nice solo piano and
vocals performance but even better response by the audience! There was a
small bunch of guys on the back singing along with good ol' Joe!
I'm not alone!

re: chalkhill's relay team names

Most people wouldn't "get" it or may even misinterpret your intentions
(i.e., "Charmtown..." and "I Don't Want To Be Here") but some of these would
make great T-shirt slogans.

Charmtown Is Paved With Broken Glass
Real By Relay
Where Did The Ordinary People Go?  (maybe not a great name for a relay team
but, personally, I'd love to have a t-shirt that posed that query)
Runaways
Standing In For Joe
Vanishing Girl(s)
Running With Optimisms Flame (too pompous sounding?)
I Don't Want To Be Here (too negative?)
Bumpercars (___)  (Ha!  To the left is my "emoticon" for a sports bra)
...run boy run boy (from Find The Fox)
Have You Seen Jackie? (again, maybe not a great name for a relay team but,
personally, I'd love to have a t-shirt that posed that query)
Pulsing Pulsing
Us Being Us

Cheers,
Richard

Just wondering if anyone knows Andy and Colin's birthdates (and birthtimes,
if possible).

I've seen many different dates for Andy - 12/11/53, 11/11/52, 12/11/52,
11/11/53.  I haven't been able to find Colin's birthday at all.

Thanks all
Jason
