* WorstAid: Andy Partridge's collapses during the 1982 tour were caused by his then-wife Marianne throwing away his supply of Valium, apparently unaware of the severity of benzodiazepine withdrawal.

The band retired from touring definitively in 1982 after Partridge [[CreatorBreakdown suffered a severe mental breakdown]], forcing their world tour to be cancelled. They remained studio-bound for the rest of their career, making occasional live appearances on radio and television (like a 1989 appearance on ''[[Creator/DavidLetterman Late Night with David Letterman]]'' where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Amx5CK7vdoc Partridge looks absolutely uncomfortable]]). In response to the loss of touring income, Chambers left and moved to Australia. Partridge, Moulding and Gregory didn't bother to replace him, instead recruiting session drummers on an album-per-album basis. These drummers have included: Prairie Prince (The Tubes), Dave Mattacks (Music/FairportConvention), Pat Mastelotto (Music/KingCrimson) and Dave's brother Ian Gregory.

Once Chambers left, the group completely changed their style, with the dreamy, pastoral folk-rock of ''Mummer'' serving as arguable NewSoundAlbum. From that point on XTC became a full-blown PsychedelicRock band, taking production cues from Music/TheBeatles (and Music/TheBeachBoys), jangly guitars from Music/TheByrds and idiosyncratic, humorous lyrics critical of society from TheKinks. Soon afterwards, XTC recorded the album commonly regarded as their masterpiece, ''Skylarking''. Besides critical accolades, ''Skylarking'' managed to gain them a controversial hit single as well, the Beatlesque rock of "Dear God", where Partridge basically embarked on a long NayTheist SmiteMeOMightySmiter rant, railing against [[GodIsEvil God's horrendous, callous treatment of humanity]]. God was so incensed by Mr. Partridge's display of testicular virility that he personally purchased 250,000 copies of ''Skylarking''.
