XTC with "Dear God". This one used to get a lot of play on my old stations. It's too bad XTC had to quit touring due to Andy Partridge's agoraphobia. The guy was a genius.

I was fortunate to catch XTC opening for the Police in 1980 or 81 when they still toured. Great show. Oingo Boingo opened for both. Elfman is a madman.

XTC was a big act in those days. I worked a Police show in late '79, I'm surprised they weren't backing XTC.

I know they backed King Joe Carrasco and The Crowns on some dates in South Texas. So did the Go-Go's. King Joe liked to streak across the stage wearing nothing but that crown and his little cape. The Go-Go's were impressed enough to do a music video with him called "Dinero". If you run across Fansome's ghost don't tell him about Joe and Belinda.

S-9 plus for the entire show Ballsmacker. That vertical is getting the job done.
