Xtc: Black Sea
Title: Black Sea
Label: Ape House

Charting in the U.S. Top 50, XTC's fourth album emphasizes the band's social commentary. Including the alternative hit "Generals And Majors", it becomes a breakthrough album for the band in America. Andy: "The band are becoming a slick-sounding, commando, trouble-shooting unit, ready to go anywhere on earth, songs written on the hoof, rehearsed in dressing room and slammed down here on our hardest album. The live machine captured with minimum trimmings." Andy: "Recorded at the height of touring mania. We were about as muscular sound-wise as we would ever be. It sounded like our live set, raucous and very tight and pumped up."Originally released on 12 September 1980 in the U.K. Reached No. 16 on the U.K. album chart. Reached No. 41 on the Billboard album chart in the U.S.A. Reached No. 1 on the New Zealand album chart. Features 3 bonus tracks.
