Peter Blegvad and Andy Partridge  - Gonwards

Gonwards is the second release by Peter Blegvad and Andy Partridge.

Mixing spoken word and songs, the material is voiced by Blegvad and features music played, programmed and assembled by Andy Partridge and Stu Rowe (in whose Swindon-based digital studio the recordings were made).

The trio has produced an album that began as a re-imagination of the myth of The Blues and grew from there to encompass a multitude of musical and lyrical themes; the latter including a roll call of words and terminology for use in The Blues, musings on alcohol and St. Augustine, the role of the car and much more.

A typically brilliant and playful fusion of disparate elements from two of Rock music's most inventive eccentrics.

Available as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Eight

The eighth volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series.

The cherry on the Warbles cake, the series ends with the dreamy swing of Through Electric Gardens, the perplexing personal possibilities of The Bland Leading The Bland, the fright-night strangeness of Shalloween and much, much more.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Seven

The seventh volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series.

The psychedelic stamp on the cover is a good indication of the contents within.

Kicking off with the brain-blowing new song 2 Rainbeu Melt (a great marriage of multi-coloured landscape and some superb Andy poetry), Seven also features the blasting rocker Sonic Boom.

You may giggle at the bubblegum project demos Candymine and Visit To The Doctor and dissolve in a pool of purple goo with the great missing Dukes Of Stratosphear track, Open A Can Of Human Beans.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Six

The sixth volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series.

19 numbers from the vaults (a shoe box actually) in a collection that even Andy thinks deserves ten and half Mercury Prizes.

From the piquant pop purity of I Can't Tell You What Truth Is Anymore via the sour Tiny Circus Of Life, to the seafront psychedelia of End Of The Pier, this particular stamp bristles with wholesome goodness.

Roll up, roll up, its all here, before your very ears. Just a shame we couldn't pack the candy floss in with the disc.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Five

With the fifth volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series, the stamp collection grows with 20 more titillating treats from Andy's backlog of recordings.

Moving through the lighter than air Head Funk of I Defy You Gravity, the swingle bells of Ice Jet Kiss, through to the gorgeous dirge of My Land Is Burning, Andy's garden shed continued to give up its precious treasures.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Four

This fourth volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series contains 19 tracks of fab, including 'The Art Song' (a playful paean to some mixed up paintings), 'All I Dream Of Is A Friend' (the beautiful ballad from Andy's ill-fated James And The Giant Peach soundtrack).

A great rabbit hole of a disc. Enter the wonderland posthaste.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Three

This third volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series contains 'My Train Is Coming' (almost every song from the 'Hard Days Night' album smashed into one), 'This Is The End' (a chugging little demo of a song aimed at XTC's 'Oranges and Lemons' disc andone of the Andy's unrecorded favourites).

You also get 'Lightheaded', written for the computer animated film of the same name, as well as 16 other jolly winners.

If you like Volumes 1 and 2, you'll cream your chinos over this one.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume Two

This second volume of Andy's essential 'secret tape' series contains such gems as a rare recording of the storming 'I Don't Want To Be Here' originally donated for an AIDS charity disc and 'Young Marrieds', a cynical peek at tender wedded bliss.

Along with 15 other quality cuts, you'll also hear the song that summed up Andy's feeling on contractual entrapment of the record company kind, 'Ship Trapped In Ice'.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles Volume One

The first volume in Andy Partridge's Fuzzy Warbles series.

Welcome to the garden of unearthly delights.

Bursting at the seams with demos, rarities and side projects taken from Andy's private tapes, the Fuzzy Warbles series is a must have collection for anyone who wants a microscopic view inside the mercurial mind of XTC's main songwriter.

Available on cd and as high quality mp3 and flac downloads.

The Milk And Honey Band - In Colour (mp3 download)

Comprising material recorded during the same sessions as 2009's acclaimed Dog Eared Moonlight, In Colour was originally released in November 2010 as a download only release.

The Milk And Honey Band - Round The Sun (mp3 download)

The Milk And Honey Band's debut album from 1994, originally released on the Rough Trade label.

More lo-fi than subsequent releases, Round The Sun comprised material written while Robert White was still a part of the acclaimed Post-Psychedelic Indie band levitation.

Perhaps as a result of White's time in Levitation, the material has a more Psychedelic/Progressive approach than featured in the band's later Pop orientated material.

Veda Hille - Young Saint Marie (mp3 download)

Songs by Neil Young and Buffy Sainte-Marie rendered in a uniquely Veda Hille way.

Aided by the CBC Radio Orchestra and her own Riot Life band, the album features some strident and emotive string arrangements from Giorgio Magnanensi.

Available as a digi-pack cd (we have a very limited stock of these) and a download.

Andy Partridge - Powers

12 unique instrumentals created by Andy Partridge in order to evoke the visionary artwork of Sci-Fi paperback legend, Richard M Powers.

The Milk And Honey Band - Dog Eared Moonlight (mp3 download)

The fourth studio album from Robert White's Brighton-based band.

Contains the haunting Just You, the seductive Maryfaith Autumn and the anthemic Waste Of Time.

Fusing Indie Rock, Alt Country and Psychedelic Pop influences, Dog Eared Moonlight is the curious lovechild of XTC, the Finn Brothers and Midlake.

Packaged in a high quality miniature vinyl replica sleeve.

Jen Olive - I SAY LOVE ep (mp3 download)

Jen Olive's debut Ape EP features 2 tracks from Warm Robot plus 2 Lighterthief remixes and 2 songs exclusive to this download only release.

'Astounding allegro algorithm from Albuquerque.' - Andy Partridge

'With abstract themes, warped guitar playing, syncopated percussion and world music inspired vocals, it makes for a fascinating offering.' - Outroversion
