Andy Partridge Retrospective

by PopMatters Staff

27 October 2006

 

“Having worked for years in a hinterland between obscurity and popularity, Andy Partridge has finally hit the fulcrum as he’s gained his artistic freedom, and recognition of his band XTC’s influence on pop history has suddenly blossomed. This fall’s completion of his odds-and-sods Fuzzy Warbles solo series offers a chance to reflect back on a tumultuous career and give a master craftsman of pop his due.”
—Patrick Schabe, PopMatters interview with Andy Partridge.
