    Everything, everything is a Manchester band. They have been creating brilliant no-compromise music for over a decade. Happy to be different, their arrangements are complex, dynamic, and the opposite of Top 20 material

    I got to see them in New York in early 2014 in a tiny venue called the Bowery Ballroom, when the Arc album came out. I'd heard some of the early stuff like 'Photoshop Handsome' on Radio X, but they were so much better live than I expected. These two were really good live.





    Excellent band! I haven't heard the new (ish) album, I'll check that out today.

    Hey, thanks a lot! I am envious that you saw them live! I came across them on British TV in a live session on the Jules Holland's show some years ago, and was bowled over by how tight the band was with such complex arrangements. But by some quirk of life I couldn't remember their name and just forgot about them!
    Just this morning I tried a few Google searches and suddenly there they were! Here's a 2016 session I found that demonstrates (as you already noted) how good they are live...

    Excellent clip! Thanks for posting that.

    I kind of lucked into seeing them, actually! They didn't do a proper tour, just a few dates on each coast to promote Arc. When I saw that they were doing Bowery (they did two nights, I caught the first) I jumped at the chance to get tickets. As I said, the venue is quite small, and I got pretty close to the stage. I've actually got photos somewhere, I'll see if I can find them.

    Glad I got to see them. Who knows when they'll make it back to the States?

    The song that got my attention in the first place...



    Real XTC vibe to that one.

    I saw them open for The Joy Formidable at The Paradise in Boston a few years back.

    Not really my kind of music, but I do remember that the bass player was outstanding.

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing! Wouldn't hit my radio station but it's still worth a listen!

    I agree! (And I HAVE seen XTC live!).
    You can hear a lot of influences in their music... but I don't think you could mistake them for anybody else, they have such a strong identity

    Now I'm the one who's envious! I always wanted to see XTC. :)

    They were very good - in fact I saw them twice because I liked the first concert so much! Really good sound in two smallish venues which suited the occasion very well, the band was super tight and the songs so infectious you just had to sing along. They were a jolly bunch, and the atmosphere was terriffic - everybody walked out of those concerts with a big grin on their face!
