Yeah, what Catman said. Dogs dying = not usually funny. This dog, on the other hand:

Wow... I can't believe that Curved Air and Rise Robots Rise were mentioned on this thread!!! smile

I thought I was the only person that was into those bands here...

Since I've been on a "vinyl version vs. cd version" demonstration of XTC for my lady recently, I can state with utter confidence that I could easily live with:

1. Drums And Wires
2. Black Sea
3. English Settlement
4. Mummer
5. Big Express
6. Skylarking
7. 25'Oclock/Psonic Psunspot
8. Oranges And Lemons
9. Nonesuch
10. Apple Venus/ Wasp Star

XTC are in my top 5 of my all time favorites. They are easily as great as the Beatles.

They're re-releasing all of the XTC catalog (hopefully remastered well) this very month!!! grin

Until then, I have to say that the cds sound very good but vinyl XTC "wins" for sonic punch and lush gorgeousness. Of course, everything up to Oranges And Lemons was originally intended for vinyl release anyway.

In the very first list, too... (Curved Air anyways ;))

Sounds like I need to listen to more XTC. Other than Making Plans for Nigel I hadn't really paid attention to them.

So, so underappreciated, since Andy Partridge's stage fright kept them from touring after a fashion. A unique and amazing "band."

Terry, O & L, Skylarking, and Nonesuch have already been remastered.

I would have if they sent me the T-shirt. You know how it is though, a band gets famous and forgets its original fan base.
