XTC fans will be able to see two original band members play this weekend just days after three of the band’s albums have been reissued on vinyl today.

Founding members of the Swindon band Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers will play a four-night marathon of sold-out shows at the Swindon Arts Centre over the weekend.

And by chance the show coincides with the re-release of three of the band’s albums on vinyl, Apple Venus Volume, Wasp Star, and Skylarking.

Red House Records, based in the family-run Holmes Music, on Farringdon Road, will have copies of the newly-made vinyl in store from today.

Paul Holmes from Holmes Music told the Adver: “It’s the musical equivalent of an astronomical happening which occurs only once in a lifetime.

“They haven’t been repressed since the originals were released so they’ve been unavailable since then, unless you’re willing to fork out hundreds."

The record store has even got a bit of XTC history to its name, the original keyboard player Barry Andrews was found through an advertisement placed in the shop window.

“They’ve got quite a cult following, we had an American family last week and get Japanese tourists taking pictures of the shop,” added Paul.
