Does anyone remember the name Beatles?? to the hell with them when i think about one of the greatest band ever around the world this 3 genious gathered in the late 70's a marvelous musique track by track a truly masterpiece of Band XTC could be nominated like the psychedelic insane version of Beatles and indeed they were indeed criminally ignored and under rated but despite of it they were perhaps the most succesful band in studio ever because they decided not touring anymore since 1982 due to stage fright people from Andy "Genius " Partridge but i was one of the lucky guys who saw them here in my country venezuela in 1981 playing here, an unforgetable moment when we didnt know yet what was about to come in the later years with this supreme band ,sometimes is such a relief of happines when i have in my ears music so gorgeous like this,thanks Andy for this marvelous treasure called music long life to XTC

A quintessentially English pop.rock band, writing beautifully crafted songs with wit and humour. It's said that they would have achieved far greater recogition and success than they did were it not for Andy Partridge's pathological stagefright that prevented the band from touring - the total number of their gigs can probably be counted on one hand. Almost criminally ignored and under-rated, which is a crying shame as they are undoubtedly one of the best bands Britain has produced.
