Mummer is the sixth studio album by the English band XTC, released on 30 August 1983. It reached No. 51 on the UK album chart and No. 145 on the . Billboard album charts. The album title refers to a Mummers play. Working titles considered for the album were Fallen From The Garden and Fruit. It spawned three UK singles; "Great Fire", "Wonderland" and "Love on a Farmboy's Wages" (reached No. 50 on the UK singles chart)

Mummer, the first album to follow Andy Partridge's mental breakdown, which led to XTC's retirement from touring, is very much the work of an eccentric in isolation. The album is a collection that builds on the groundwork of English Settlement with gentle, acoustic songs that evoke pastoral images and peaceful times.

View XTC's page on Rhapsody. XTC is often too clever for its own good, which probably explains why this British trio has never amassed anything more than a cult following here. It's not that the band has been deficient in the melodic end of things – its songs are routinely hummable – but all too frequently, the group's gimmickry gets in the way of its songs.
