XTC: "The Meeting Place"

XTC had a surprising brush with success in the 1980s. From that period comes its pastoral masterpiece, Skylarking.

This time Colin Moulding takes the lead as he celebrates a clandestine meeting with a member of the opposite gender in "The Meeting Place."

Todd Rundgren produced Skylarking, the result were magnificent, despite numerous squabbles during the recording sessions between XTC leader Andy Partridge and Rundgren.
