Andy Partridge

Apples & Oranges / Humanoid Boogie (10” vinyl preorder)

Andy has always had a special affection for the music of the late 1960s and so when it came to making initial recordings in his newly upgraded studio he turned to favourites from that era, specifically, Syd Barrett’s “Apples & Oranges” and The Bonzo Dog Band’s “Humanoid Boogie”.

Exclusive to the APE store, here’s your chance to own those recordings on a very limited 10” vinyl EP with the songs in both stereo and mono housed in a groovy picture sleeve.

All orders come with a postcard signed by Mr Andy Partridge. Only 1396 copies are available.
