About the Artist
For almost four decades, XTC fans could only dream of witnessing the sensational XTC classic songbook played live. That dream has now become a reality. XTC’s legendary drummer, Terry Chambers, is back on the road with his band EXTC (named and approved by XTC frontman, Andy Partridge).
Emerging out of the post-punk and new-wave explosion of the late 70s. XTC experienced global success, touring with the likes of The Police and Talking Heads. Sadly, their legions of loyal fans would be left in limbo, when in 1982 XTC stopped touring, becoming a studio-based entity.
Alongside Terry, EXTC features frontman Steve Hampton (lead vocal & guitar – Joe Jackson, The Vapors and Dead Crow Road) and Terry Lines (bass & vocals – The Rams and Dead Crow Road).
“EXTC features original drummer Terry Chambers and was launched with Andy Partridge’s blessing. They deliver everything to fans who’ve waited 40 years. The music is brilliantly performed.” – Jeff Elbel

“What a night. To see EXTC is to spend the best evening in the best company and, given the chance, you really should go. If King Arthur and Merlin were ever to wake, they would be pleased to see how the good folk of Albion remember them.” – Dave Jennings
