XTC members work on new album
XTC frontman Andy Partridge and keyboardist Barry Andrews have been working on an improvisational music project with drummer Martyn Barker.

Known simply as the Partridge-Andrews-Barker Project, the trio compiled more than eight hours of material during three live sessions in Swindon’s Headroom Studio last November.

Engineer Merv Carswell and Future Sound Of London guitarist Stuart Rowe recently finished arranging the material into a two-disc set, ‘Monstrance’, to be released in the US on April 3 via Ape House.

According to a spokesperson, the album is “unusual but invigorating stuff.”

The ‘Monstrance’ tracklisting is:

Disc 1:
‘I Lovely Cosmonaut’
‘Winterwerk’
‘Black Swan Black’
‘Mig’
‘Oodoo’
‘UR Tannoy’
‘Little Field’


Disc 2:
‘Pagoda Tailfin’
‘Chain Gang’
‘Torturetainment’
‘The Floating World’
‘Priapple’
