XTC's Andy Partridge talks about writing to order, the collaborations that work and the perils of being a songwriter for hire.
To mark the release of My Failed Songwriting Career Volume One, XTC's Andy Partridge talks about writing to order, the collaborations that work – and those that don't – and the perils of being a songwriter for hire.
As well as sharing insights into the four songs on the first EP, the XTC frontman gives a sneak preview of the four that follow on Volume Two.
Mark Fisher asks the questions and Rachel Treffry provides the drink recommendation.
My Failed Songwriting Career is available from shops including Burning Shed
