Andy Partridge on twitter


300 Club - QQ All Star
Jan 10, 2012
I did a search but didn't find the answer to my question as to whether Andy Partridge (XTC) posts on here? He's very active on twitter and replies personally to most of the tweets. Lately he has been asking if anyone looks at the extensive extras on the 5.1 discs. I'm sure we could give a great response to that. Maybe we could get some interesting and engaging comments here through an "Ask Andy" thread?

I've already tried to get him to sign up for QQ and it resulted in radio silence.
Twitter is his thing, and I don't really care if Andy signs up for QQ or not.
All I care about is that we continue to get more 5.1 releases from XTC, and it looks like we will be!
