Two Hours With XTC’s Colin Moulding

XTC fans have probably already heard that Andy Partridge’s decades-spanning campaign to rid the band of members not named Andy was stopped two years ago due to its great success.  After releasing the band’s Apple Venus/Wasp Star albums, co-writer and bassist extraordinaire Colin Moulding was the last out the proverbial XTC door.  But why?  Wherefore?

Well.

If you are a serious XTC fan (meaning: you are a nerdy male bass player) and have a strong stomach for quasi-amateurish podcast/radio production then the following two hours on the telephone with Mr. Moulding of Swindon will surely delight.  All others may safely take a pass.

Highlights include details of the upcoming  2009 XTC reissues coming from Virgin, Colin’s biggest musical influences,  fawning callers, Colin’s tremendous, refreshing shrugs of the shoulders when quizzed on gear, shocking revelations about the late River Phoenix, XTC’s working (overtime) methods, why it may not really be over between the songwriting pair and quite a bit more.
