XTC is one of the UK’s most revered and influential bands. While XTC are no more, their legacy has passed to EXTC − the band of legendary XTC drummer, Terry Chambers. For the ultimate stamp of approval, the band comes with the support of XTC main men, Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory.
Hot on the heels of a storming headline appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival, EXTC perform a full set of XTC classics, from their adrenalised early anthems through to the psychedelia-infused rock of later albums. And you can expect the band to deliver the same fire seen in XTC’s gigging heyday, which included worldwide tours with The Police and Talking Heads. EXTC is also busy writing new material that will pay homage to the past while forging an exciting new musical future.
Terry Chambers – Drums. The powerhouse behind XTC, Terry Chambers is one of the world’s most respected drummers. As XTC’s original drummer, Terry’s unique rhythms propelled tracks like Making Plans for Nigel, Senses Working Overtime and Generals and Majors.

In 2016, Terry reunited with XTC bandmate, Colin Moulding. Under the name TC&I, Terry and Colin released the acclaimed Great Aspirations EP in 2017 and Naked Flames live album in 2019.
