I have no idea what he's on about. I think it's not complimentary!
Oops! Sorry to have highlighted this then. Maybe i shouild re-read his words and see if i've missed something(?) Away from all that, just have to say that it's wonderful you are back making music again which i hope will continue to enrich our lives for many years to come. Much love, John Campbell x
In case you're not fully aware of Richard Sanderson's subsequent underground glories, he didn't sit still after becoming Edwyn Collins (would love to know how that looked and sounded). In recent years he's combined avant-improvisation with electronical experiments in a variety of bands including the seminal Ticklish with Kev Hopper and Scopac, become a champion lefty/folkie blogger, club promoter and Resonance FM broadcaster, a passionate morris dancer - and been threatened with serious violence by Mark E Smith as a result of his leading role in Fall tribute band The Hideous Replicas. He's a great bunch of guys!

This was his response to Julian Cope on his Livejournal blog: http://bagrec.livejournal.com/744245.html?mode=reply

I'm afraid it definitely wasn't a compliment from Julian, Edwyn. It's no secret that by the early 80s I had the kind of fanatical love for Orange Juice that was later seen in fans of The Smiths, and it did influence the music I made as I moved away from the more bitter Wire influenced music I made with Drop- especially my singing where I affected an Edwyn-esque croon rather than just shouting.... Julian didn't approve, but then I didn't really like his monoliths and turtle shells much either... Listening to Orange Juice also got me listening to disco and soul, which I'm sure Julian wouldn't have approved of either.

Thanks for the kind comments Lindo!

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.
