Andy Partridge and Todd Bernhardt
Complicated Game: Inside the Songs of XTC

Developed from a series of interviews conducted over many months, Complicated Game details Andy Partridge songs from throughout XTC's career and provides a unique insight into the work of one of Britain's most original and influential songwriters.

Filled with anecdotes about Partridge, his XTC bandmates, and the band's adventures around the world (all told with AP's legendary humour), Complicated Game casts new light on the writing of lyrics, the construction of melodies and arrangements, the process of recording, and the workings of the music industry.

The book includes pages from Partridge's songwriting notebooks, reproductions of his original artwork designs, a guide to Andy Partridge's Swindon and a foreword by Steven Wilson.
