Andy Partridge, circa 1982, from Smash Hits
Stuart Draper says,

“. . . definitely from Smash Hits, either February or March 1982 (I suspect February). It was the main photo on an XTC feature, principally on the English Settlement tour in Germany. The caption was something about Andy suffering from egg poisoning. I can't remember the main title of the article, but the secondary title was ‘it's the fort that counts’.

“I believe the front cover of Smash Hits that fortnight was Simon Le Bon... and I might still have a copy somewhere in my parents' attic.”

Graeme Wong See scanned the article in question, which is in fact entitled “XTC in Germany (or It's the Fort That Counts)”. Enjoy!
