Definitions for hinges

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word hinges.


  1. Hinges

    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 to resemble a stamp-collector's album. Normally, stamp collectors attach their stamps the pages of an album with special sticky fasteners called "hinges".
