XTC, now comprising the songwriting core duo of Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding, both founding members of XTC way back in 1975, are set to release their first boxed set on their own Idea Records.

Andy and Colin had conceived the idea of presenting two contrasting sides to XTC over two lps as a double album. Commercial pressures led this to become 2 albums released in rapid succession; 'Apple Venus Vol 1' released in 1999 and 'Wasp Star' in 2000. This boxed set reunites those albums as they were originally intended with the added bonus of the demo recordings for each.

Compared to the chamber pop of the first volume, 'Wasp Star' is, for the most part, XTC displaying their hard rock side. 'Apple Venus Vol 1' is, as one would expect, non-conformity at its most brilliant, luscious orchestral pop that sounded like nothing else released in 1999.
