Terry Chambers and Steve Tilling: From XTC to EXTC

After being delayed 18 months by the pandemic, Terry Chambers is finally out on the road, giving XTC classics the live airing they deserve with his new band EXTC. The drummer is our very special guest on this episode of What Do You Call That Noise? The XTC Podcast along with bandmate, frontman and all-round multitasker Steve Tilling.

We also hear from fans who caught the band’s gig at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on 7 September 2021.

Drink recommendation from Karen Neill.

Mark Fisher’s review of the gig is here
