EXTC

XTC is one of the most groundbreaking and influential British bands to have emerged from England's post-punk/new wave scene. While XTC are no more, the power-pop baton has now passed to EXTC, featuring legendary original drummer, Terry Chambers. 

What's in store? A full set of classic XTC songs, spanning the band's 20-plus-year career, from their Monkees-meets-Captain-Beefheart roots to the pastoral/baroque rock of later albums. And all delivered with the same fire and passion witnessed in XTC's gigging heyday, which included worldwide tours with The Police and Talking Heads.

Alongside Terry, EXTC features Steve Tilling (vocals, guitar, ex-TC&I – the band of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers), Steve Hampton (guitar, vocals) and Ken Wynne (bass, vocals). And for the ultimate stamp of approval, EXTC comes with the support and blessing of XTC luminaries Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory.

Artists worldwide – including Blur, They Might Be Giants, Steven Wilson, Kaiser Chiefs, Field Music, Everything Everything and Franz Ferdinand – cite XTC as a major influence. The band is also often compared reverentially to acts including The Who, The Kinks, and The Beatles.
