Hi all
Does anyone a complete discography of Edwyn's solo career?

I couldn't find one on the net.

I am sure between us we could create it, but if someone had already written it up, I would like to see it.

Someone on the Rip It Up mailing list posted a large PDF document they had compiled of Edwyn's entire discography - it's excellent and comprehensive.

I can post it up here if you're interested
That would be a good idea! Go on ...
It's quite a large PDF file - written by Phil Hubbard and posted a while back on the Rip It Up mailing list. It goes right up to Home Again (but not the singles I don't think)

Here is a link to download it via mediafire

Thanks Frankie, it seems it's a bit more than a discography ... and thanks to Phil, who has written and put together the whole thing. That was a lot of work ...

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. 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

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…
