When I went to see them at the Hollywood Paladium.Andy Partridge decided that evening that he was done performing live. The opening band played, but XTC never came out. They were through. I love English Roundabout. It's a good album

I used to watch them at 'The Brunell Rooms' in Swindon about 20 years ago!

senses working overtime.

My hub is now in a 3 piece band so the singer guitarist mainly decides on the material they do .He digs up some oldies that I wonder about sometimes.
Bummer about Andy's sudden decision that day, martha.

daafish
I only recall that song on the radio a long time ago and it's just popped up again lately for me.Something about lemons I don't know their other material .

XTC!!! You know, the slightly obscure English New Wave/College Rock group that really came on the scene with their '92 release "The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead." Although, technically they've been around late 70's. Oh ya, here's a bit of trivia... Steve Lillywhite has worked with them in the past... possibly their only U2 connection. I bought an autographed XTC CD from a charity auction. Who would've thought that I would be the ONLY bidder for it.

For those who say they suck, well, I can only respond by stating that they are an acquired taste. They're a light-hearted quirky group. Not exactly to be taken seriously (i.e. P.U.S.A.). Anywho, that's just my input ~Cleasai

XTC is the name of a all nude strip club here. Intersting.

wasn't that a crash test dummies song? i am certain it was crash test dummies that had it on the 'dumb and dumber' soundtrack which would have been around '92 i think.

were the crash test dummies covering the song?

There was a guy that used to hang out here who really loved that band. I'm not that familiar with them myself.

*sigh* Crash Test Dummies are the folks that brought us "Mmm mm mm mm." The version you heard of "Peter Pumpkinhead" (on that said soundtrack) was a remake of the XTC original. Personally I'm keen on the original version. -=Cleasai

Yes Sicy, "Dear God" was also sung by XTC around 1987.
