XTC: Middlesex Polytechnic

Colin Irwin, Melody Maker, 28 January 1978

"HELLO, WE'RE XTC. You're the audience, and this is 'Radios In Motion'." A violent blast of noise collides with your brain, a few pints of lager collide with your head, and you're involuntarily heaved skywards by the frenetic mass of bodies furiously pogoing. The XTC tour is under way.

Total word count of piece: 461
