XTC SPECIAL, a musical conversation with Andy Partridge.
Paul says "Thanks For Christmas" to Record Store Day management for letting him devote the entire last episode of 2021 to the music of XTC, and a long music-centric chat with one of their founding members, Andy Partridge. Along the way, Partridge riffs on XTC history, his musical influences, notable producers and collaborators, his passion for album art, and his recent and ongoing series of solo EPs chronicling what he self-effacingly refers to as, My Failed Songwriting Career. Andy even brought his guitar! If you're an XTC fan, you'll love it, and if you're new to their music, this might be a great place to start your next record buying binge.
