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 ...

Getting a good job is not easy. To do this, you must have a competitive resume. I know that it will be difficult to compose it on your own. Therefore, it would be better to entrust this to an executive cv writing service where they professionally write resumes for any vacancy. Thanks to this help, I was able to get my dream job.

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. 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…
