Edwyn & Grace were on the 5Live mid-PM show - I think it was Richard Bacon - approx 1-2 years ago.


I missed the whole thing apart from the final 5 minutes, during which there was some chat and he did a song.

I was gutted because in the short section that I caught they were typically engaging / charming / funny / inspiring and the song was fantatsic.


I'm an irregular fan, so don't know the back catalogue in detail and so can't place the song.

Does anyone remember this show (from the extensive detail I've supplied!) and if so, can you let me know what the closing song was and if there's a recording of show / song anywhere.


Many thanks

Hi Richard,

It was on the Simon Mayo show, but presented that week by Richard Bacon as you say,
think Mayo was on hols.
Was broadcast July 2009, and here it is.......

Hope that link works ok.

It was a song called Low Expectations....I'm going to put it on the player on the home page right now just for you Richard. It originally featured on an album called Hellbent on Compromise, but Edwyn did a later, better version which was on an impossible to get here it is.
Christ, I've just listened to that link below, I sound like I'm on speed. I am never going on the radio again, ever. That was horrific. Edwyn and Carwyn gorgeous, fast forward to the end and shut that madwoman up.
Not at all Grace, was a great interview. Always good fun when you two are on together.
Thanks all, fantastic stuff

Was watching the Home Again docu on Ytube the other night - me and the wife both think you are ace

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…
