    Default XTC get their own thread

    This band is too fucking good. Let us discuss their releases in-depth in this thread.

    I am going to Amoeba tomorrow and hope to find the Apple Box.

    When I am devoid of artistic inspiration I always avoid Skylarking because it makes me feel bad about my shortcomings.

    Have they put out anything beyond the Fuzzy Warbles sets since the early part of the decade?

    Andy is a member of Shriekback now and their new record Glory Bumps is very good ol' Shriekback! Close to "Big Night Music"

    SB singer Barry Andrews was the original XTC keyboard player

    So is XTC on hiatus? I know Colin Moulding left but then recorded a couple of songs with Andy that they released with Apple Box in 05.

    EDIT: Just answered my own question via Wikipedia. Bummer.

    I'm not sure if they are on a hiatus but with a songsmith like Andy Partridge I would think it would only be a matter of time before we get a new XTC record.

    Did I do an XTC mix when I posted their discography in the "Young'uns Guide" thread? If not, I could.

    I don't think you did. I loooooove XTC. Everything from Drums and Wires onward is on my constant rotation. I listen to them so much. English Settlement is perfect.

    Please do. Initiate the uninitiated. Although I would do a couple mixes...maybe late 70s-80s and 90s-early 00s.

    Make sure to put The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead on there. It's stuck in my head right now.

    I fucking love the cover art for Apple Venus, Pt. 1. Yes, it is incredibly simple. But there is something about it that rules. Same goes for all those releases, actually.

    Don't forget Skylarking.

    I have realized that I don't like a lot of covers that have a picture of the band on them. I would like that Black Sea cover more if it was just that background.
