XTC – In Concert – 1978 – Past Daily Backstage Weekend
Click on the link here for Audio Player: 1978-03-25 BBC In Concert (XTC)
XTC this weekend, recorded live in concert from March 25, 1978 – when the band was just 15 months old. Argued over whether they were more popular in the U.S. than the UK, they had mass appeal and a string of hits to prove it worldwide.
Although they maintained a huge popularity well into the 80′s, it’s their earlier material that established them as more than just a passing fancy. And, as with any band, capturing them live during their formative years is always exciting to hear. It’s the newness of it all – both for the group and the audience.
And the band is in fine form for this concert.
I think most everyone will agree you can crank this one up.
Enjoy the weekend.
