Making Plans for Nigel… Senses Working Overtime… Life Begins at the Hop… Mayor of Simpleton… Generals and Majors… Dear God… Sgt. Rock… XTC is one of the UK’s most revered and influential bands. While XTC are no more, their legacy has passed to EXTC − the band of legendary XTC drummer, Terry Chambers. For the ultimate stamp of approval, the band comes with the support of XTC leader, Andy Partridge.
Hot on the heels of a storming headline appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival, EXTC perform a full set of XTC classics, from their adrenalized early anthems through to the psychedelia-infused rock of later albums. And you can expect the band to deliver the same fire seen in XTC’s gigging heyday, which included worldwide tours with The Police and Talking Heads.
Terry Chambers is one of the world’s most respected drummers. The driving force of XTC and EXTC, his unique rhythms propel tracks like Making Plans for Nigel, Senses Working Overtime and Generals and Majors. Joining Terry in EXTC are Steve Tilling (vocals, guitar, ex-TC&I, the band of XTC’s Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers), Steve Hampton (guitar, vocals) and Matt Hughes (bass, vocals). Artists worldwide – including They Might Be Giants, Blur, Kaiser Chiefs, Everything Everything and Franz Ferdinand – cite XTC as a major influence.
