AAT #015 (05-15-09): Music of the Stratosphears

Our 15th AAT was originally webcast on the 15th of May. In April, 2009, via his Ape House label, Andy Partridge re-released deluxe editions of 25 O’Clock and Psonic Psunspot. The deluxe editions feature extra tracks and copious liner notes. Those interested in the influences and inspirations of the fantastic music on those records will be especially pleased with the liner notes. What we’re saying is, go to your local record shop (while it still exists) and buy the CD’s! You’ll be glad you did.

And once you’ve listened to the CD’s, you’ll naturally want to hear the great music that inspired the Dukes in their youth. Next thing you know, you’re down the rabbit hole of 60’s psychedelia. And it sounds like The Music of the Stratosphears.
