Ape Sign Lighterthief 

Andy Partridge to work with Swindon band on forthcoming EPs

Lighterthief doesn't venture on to the stage that often, but when they do, they're described as 'an unpredictable and wonderful work of art.'
And now that's been recognised by APE Records, headed by former XTC lead member Andy Partridge.
Done deal:
Stuart Rowe of Lighterthief, now signed by APE Records
Describing Lighterthief's founder Stuart Rowe as the Swindon musical 'Willy Wonka', Partridge will now be working with Rowe on a forthcoming series of downloadable recordings.
