Good band, but...
13 June 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Well, XTC's one of the best bands ever, but.. this show... was.. uh, rather boring. It's them recording Black Sea (with emphasis on the song Towers of London, IIRC), and it's.. interesting, I suppose, but you can only watch Terry drumming alone for so many times through. I remember watching it and deciding that I never, ever wanted to record an album if THAT'S what it was like.

Then I realised that I could do it other ways as well, so I did.

Yay!
