The feud between Colin Moulding & Andy Partridge appears permanent. It’s a shame because, collectively, they put out fantastic albums as the songwriters of XTC.
Some comfort comes in the form of TC&I, the new musical entity involving Colin Moulding and former XTC drummer Terry Chambers. Their first outing is a wonderful 4-song EP titled Great Aspirations.
“Scatter Me” is a song that has really grown on me, with beautiful, mournful lyrics over a classic Moulding song structure and arrangement.
Time is passing. We are getting older. The thick black mane of hair Moulding used to have is now gray. “Scatter Me” seems to be a paean to the inevitable.
