Cracking show last night, I've seen Edwyn live quite a few times over the last
few years, but last night topped them all. The new stuff sounds great live,
anyone still to see him is in for a treat. And hats off to Will for his great cameo......
PS - Get there early for the support bands, both were really good.
It was a cracker wasn't it. I enjoyed it all. Once again I was more than impressed with the talented musicians in Edwyn's band. I enjoy playing guitar for fun, but if I practice every day till I am 100 I won't get near Tom Edwards. I enjoyed both Will and Carwyn filling in for the guest vocalists on tracks from Losing Sleep. I have also seen Edwyn many times, and saw Orange Juice a few times. I don't remember OJ being as tight as last nights band, much as I love the songs from back then too.
It was a tired and emotional Monday morning after Oran Mor, Edwyn having a day off in his bed, watching David bloody Dickinson et al and a very fine Indian meal at The Tiffin Rooms with all the gang to finish off a fantastic trip back to the dear green place.
The Kinbeats love Glasgow, they got everywhere yesterday. They needed a day off, they're crewing as well as supporting. How we love that youthful enthusiasm.
Oh and as for Tom, isn't he amazing? The nicest man in rock, to boot. We're not letting him escape our clutches..
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...

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. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue
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…

Does anyone know anything about this mythical film that Edwyn was working on in the mid 80's with Alan Horne and Paul Quinn? Paul Blue Eyes and Ain't That Always The Way were credited as being from…Continue
