About Colin

I'm not sure that Colin Moulding gets the credit he deserves. Sure, XTC bandmate Andy Partridge is the more prolific, and better known, songwriter, but bassist Colin wrote the band's first three charting UK singles, Life Begins at the Hop, Making Plans for Nigel and Generals and Majors. He also wrote this slice of excellence, Dying, from the 1986 album Skylarking.


  1. 3 out of 4 of my favourite XTC songs there Martin the other being Love on a Farmboy's Wages

    1. Excellent. A band with a rich back-catalogue, for sure.
