Picture: Kevin Nixon

To cheer us up during the Covid-19 lockdown, Andy Partridge pays a call to What Do You Call That Noise? The XTC Podcast with the promise that Everything’ll Be Alright.

He talks with characteristic wit and candour about the power of XTC as a live band, the chords for Roads Girdle the Globe and how Yacht Dance was nearly a song about bees.

Essential listening for every XTC fan, this episode that will leave you Burning With Optimism’s Flames.
