Laughing Yes, now would be a bad time for China Crisis to stage a comeback

On facebook everyone seems to have seen Wire, XTC, X-Ray Specs etc.

Just out of interest, what year did you see Big Youth and did he put on a good show?

Not sure if it's an urban myth but I heard that Massive Attack briefly became 'Massive' during the first Gulf War.

I saw Big Youth in 1994 or so in Bradford. It was him with Jah Shaka and he did a full set. He was very good but I'd have preferred him with a band. Toots was excellent, that was a great gig.

Would like to have seen XTC. Excellent band.
