From memory it was also performed on Scottish tv once upon a time.
I think it was a chat show presented by Elaine C. Smith,
would love to see this again, unless I imagined the whole thing.....
I thought I had imagined it!
I'm sure somebody has.
Mr Bojangles was released on the CD single of Adidas World (the one with the grey cover, not the gold cover)
Cat. No. - SETCDAO45
1. Adidas world (7" Extended Radio Re-mix)
2. Mr Bogangles
3. Talking 'bout the times
4. High Fashion

Well worth getting for Mr Bogangles and Talking 'bout the times,
High Fashion - you could live without.
I've got it on cassette somewhere in a big box of other cassettes, give me six months and I could probably find it.
It was on his now defunct saturday morning show?
Cheers!
You can definitely find it on Rhapsody, which also has an host of other Edwyn semi-obscurities. (In fact I might go back there later myself!) Here's the link.

Thanks Larry
Mr. Freedom seems to be mega obscure. So sad I can't listen to it as I live outside the U.S.A. World Wide Web must be a joke ...

Martin, can you listen to Mr. Freedom at this YouTube link?

Thanks Larry,

It's not as bad as I thought it could be. But then again ... I'm so glad we have Loosing Sleep.

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



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’.

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…
