Andy Partridge and Todd Bernhardt

Complicated Game - Inside The Songs Of XTC (book pre-order)

Developed from a series of interviews conducted over many months, Complicated Game details Andy Partridge songs from throughout XTC's career and provides a unique insight into the work of one of Britain's most original and influential songwriters.

Filled with anecdotes about Partridge, his XTC bandmates, and the band's adventures around the world (all told with AP's legendary humour), Complicated Game casts new light on the writing of lyrics, the construction of melodies and arrangements, the process of recording, and the workings of the music industry.

The book includes pages from Partridge's songwriting notebooks, reproductions of his original artwork designs, a guide to Andy Partridge's Swindon and a foreword by Steven Wilson.

Pre-order for 31st March release. All pre-orders sold through Burning Shed/APE come signed by Andy Partridge.

Thieves Kitchen

The Clockwork Universe (vinyl)

Thieves' Kitchen's thematically linked sixth studio release contains songs about people whose experiences directly or indirectly bring them into contact with the universe of science and discovery.

A glorious and adventurous mix of Canterbury Prog quirks, Gentle Giant-esque intricacy and emotionally engaging singer-songwriter influences, The Clockwork Universe is another landmark for this highly creative trio.

Joined by Sanguine Hum's former drummer Paul Mallyon, and Anglagard's Johann Brand and Anna Holmgren, the album was engineered by Rob Aubrey (IQ, Big Big Train).

Very limited Plane Groovy vinyl edition.

David Rees & Martin Webb

Jethro Tull - A New Day Tapes, Volumes 1 and 2 (books)

Back in stock at a specially reduced price.

Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the A New Day Tapes collecting all the exclusive in-depth - and often irreverent - interviews with Jethro Tull members past and present that have featured in the feted Jethro Tull magazine A New Day over the last 27 years. Volume 1 includes a foreword by Ian Anderson, Volume 2 includes forewords by Martin Barre and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond.

"Contentious, thoughtful, provocative, self-serving, ingratiating and downright evasive. It's all there for the traditional and newer Tull fan alike." - Ian Anderson

"Exacting and detailed, showing a huge knowledge yet also allowing interviewees ample chance to express their viewpoints. When you read what Mick Abrahams has to say about leaving Tull, it becomes abundantly clear that this is very far from being an Ian Anderson love-in." - Prog Magazine
