XTC - Ball and Chain

Those were much simpler times. The 1980s were the gateway drug to the present day; the '60s for the '80s.

I'm falling in love with XTC again, particularly their 1982 album English Settlement. I was originally trying to find a video of Wake Up, but this one will do.

I saw them at Armadillo in Austin back in the day. They were pretty good live. Making Plans for Nigel!

I imagine they were pretty good live.

I heard that they didn't tour too much after that. Supposedly, Andy Partridge, IIRC, had major stage-fright.
