Lynne Murphy" <104LYN[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]MUSE.ARTS.WITS.AC.ZA> Subject: Re: ecstasy, Ecstacy > A student told me that the name was spelled "XTC." xtc is the name of a band, that was around before ecstasy, the drug, and which is not associated with the music scene in which the drug is prevalent. i've never seen it (the drug) spelled this way in the music press, which is where the drug is often discussed. lynne --------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
