WHAT DO YOU CALL THAT NOISE?
An XTC Discovery Book
coming March 2019
From the editor of The XTC Bumper Book of Fun for Boys and Girls comes a musical exploration of one of the most essential pop groups of the 20th century. In this compelling 228-page book, some of the world’s leading musicians and keenest fans come together to discuss what makes XTC so very special.
Every member of XTC also makes an appearance, including Andy Partridge on mixing, Dave Gregory on arranging and Barry Andrews on the piano – not to mention an in-depth review of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers playing live as TC&I for the first time in 36 years.
That’s in addition to interviews with XTC drummers Pete Phipps, Pat Mastelotto, Ian Gregory, Prairie Prince, Dave Mattacks and Chuck Sabo.
Contributing musicians include:
Chris Butler: The Waitresses
Tracey Bryn: Voice of the Beehive
Rick Buckler: The Jam
Chris Difford: Squeeze
Jason Falkner: Jellyfish
Andrew Falkous: Future of the Left
Dennis Locorriere: Dr Hook
