Colin Lloyd Tucker has been performing and recording since the late seventies. He began his debut solo album aged 17, writing, producing and playing all the instruments himself. His record releases have been sporadic, his live performances rare and in these days of packaged pop he is not easy to pigeon hole. His diversity and scope bewilder major record labels. Colin was also in groups The Gadgets, Plain Characters, Deux Filles, Jeremy's Secret and Bushtucker.
Unlike Matt Johnson (‘The The and a fellow member of The Gadgets) with whom he recorded three albums in the early eighties Colin did not sign a major deal. The record companies knew what they were getting with Matt. Colin was far less predictable. More of a musician’s musician, his credits were known to the cognoscenti. On Kate Bush’s “Red Shoes” his name mingles with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Prince.
