Andy Partridge chronology
Fuzzy Warbles Volume 8

Hinges is the ninth and final volume in the Fuzzy Warbles series, released in September 2006. The album is only available as a bonus CD in the 9-CD box set The Official Andy Partridge Fuzzy Warbles Collector's Album. The Fuzzy Warbles Series brings together demos, rarities and side projects from XTC founding member Andy Partridge; the box set collects all 8 volumes, plus the Hinges bonus disc.

The title "Hinges" is a play on the stamp-collecting theme of the cover design of all 8 previous Fuzzy Warbles volumes, and the packaging of the box set resembles a stamp collector's album. Normally, stamp collectors attach their stamps to the pages of an album with special sticky fasteners called "hinges".
