Event Description

Scottish musician Edwyn Collins – Nu-Sonics, Orange Juice and a thriving solo career – suffered devastating brain haemorrhages in 2005. Not able to speak, read, write, walk, sit up or feed himself he also lost all movement in his right side and was suffering from aphasia – an inability to use or understand language. With the help of his partner Grace and their 18-year-old son Will, Edwyn fought back, restarted his career and won an Ivor Novello award in May 2009. Edwyn will be in discussion with Grace and will also play some of his music. Tickets from ticketweb

Had bought tickets and looking forward to this but now not going to make it. Hope there are others planned.

If you are passing the Mitchell, as I was, you can get tickets in there without paying a booking fee or postage. Aye Write is great and the Mitchell is a fab building. I saw Stuart Murdoch do a similar event there a few years ago and it was brilliant.

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium.

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
