On this debut offering as TC&I, Moulding and Chambers put their XTC history behind them to create some truly original music. Not only is this a new start, but also a thing apart from their musical past. This is also the first new material from Moulding in many years.
“I thought I’ve got to do something, you can’t just sit around and eat chocolate cake and then you get the inkling that you should start writing again and you start meddling and the next thing you know Terry’s on the door step,” says Colin Moulding.
Terry Chambers adds, “You’re only here once in your life and this felt a bit like unfinished business. When I left XTC it wasn’t the greatest set of circumstances and you can’t go through your life thinking ‘what if?’ so when Colin offered the opportunity I thought, yes lets do this again.”
‘Comrades of Pop’ conveys words of warning to young musicians, while the more rocking ‘Kenny’ regrets children losing their playgrounds to urban development. On ‘Greatness’, Moulding fearlessly reveals still-burning apirations to reach the heights of Churchill, Hitchcock, Spielberg, Gershwin and McCartney.
Released at the end of 2017, ‘Great Aspirations’ is available exclusively through Pledge Music and Burning Shed. Fans can choose between signed and unsigned copies on CD. Fans can expect a new video for ‘Greatness’ in the near future.
