Barry Andrews (born 12 September 1956, West Norwood, London) was once a member of the bands XTC and League of Gentlemen with Robert Fripp, and was co-founder of Shriekback. He has collaborated with Brian Eno on several projects, most recently guesting on keyboards for the 2005 album Another Day On Earth. Andrews also played on the 1980 Iggy Pop LP, Soldier with David Bowie, Ivan Kral, Glen Matlock and Klaus Kruger.

His most notable solo track was "Win a Night Out with a Well-Known Paranoiac", which received airplay on London's Thameside Radio, and subsequently the Anne Nightingale request show on BBC Radio 1 during the mid 1980s. The A-side of this single was "Rossmore Road", named after a street in Marylebone, London.

In addition to being a musician, Andrews is also a sculptor and furniture maker.

The most recent Shriekback album, entitled Glory Bumps, was released in 2007 on the Malicious Damage record label.

His 23 year old son, Finn Andrews, is the lead singer/songwriter of the London based band, The Veils.
