Gonwards is the second release by Peter Blegvad and Andy Partridge.
 
Mixing spoken word and songs, the material is voiced by Blegvad and features music played, programmed and assembled by Andy Partridge and Stu Rowe (in whose Swindon-based digital studio the recordings were made).
 
The trio has produced an album that began as a re-imagination of the myth of 'The Blues' and grew from there to encompass a multitude of musical and lyrical themes; the latter including a roll call of words and terminology for use in 'The Blues', musings on alcohol and St. Augustine, the role of the car and much more.
 
A typically brilliant and playful fusion of disparate elements from two of Rock music's most inventive eccentrics.
 
The special box set edition is limited to 2000 copies globally.
 
* Each copy of the limited edition features a certificate hand signed by Peter Blegvad, Andy Partridge and Stuart Rowe
 
* The DVD-A includes the full album in hi-res stereo, two exclusive audio tracks, films for five of the album's songs, and three full song mix kits (accessible from any computer drive).
 
* The full package comes in a clamshell box including a pack of Loteria - a Mexican game of chance similar to bingo but using images on a deck of cards, drawn by Peter Blegvad - wherein each object depicted can be found in the song lyrics. This comes complete with a set of boards to play the game on, a set of rules and a lyric booklet.
