Hi guys

I'm in the middle of collecting all information on Orange Juice via the web and articles etc so I can build a definitive OJ website.

The site will contain biog, discography, lyrics, videos, streaming audio, articles/interviews, reviews AND a definitive list of gigs that OJ played! This has never been done as far as I know and i'd like to have a bash at it!

I've trawled the net and so far come up with this list...

* BOOTLEGGED SHOW

If anyone can fill in the blanks or add some dates for me then i'd be most grateful!

I also plan to have unofficial bootlegs of OJ and radio-sessions streaming on my site - so far I have both Kid Jensen radio sessions, the John Peel ones, a John Peel session from 1981 with Edwyn having a chat and playing "new single" Poor Old Soul, the Mike Read session, full OJ gig at London Lyceum 1983, the three tracks from Glasgow Pavillion gig given away free on tape with What Presence ?! 7"

I have some tracks from the Stirling University gig and one from a Keele gig - would obviously love to get the rest - I know of a handful of other bootlegs floating about - any details would be great.

I'd also like to investigate on how we'd go about getting all the OJ albums put up on iTunes so peeps can buy em??? It's utterly criminal that they are out of print!!

I just want OJ to have a proper and definitive website - there's precious few things scattered about everywhere on blogs etc and it'd be great to have them in one place :-)

I was at the fantastic East Kilbride gig...support was Goodbye Mr Mackenzie.Orange Juice came on to the sound of Tavares- Heaven Must be Missing an Angel ! #1 line up

Ok must be going senile...John Peel says it was The Recognitions and he is never wrang....further in depth research reveals this may have been a tad early for The MacKenzies...no matter was a terrific night...back to Ann Mccleland's (sic) Mum and Dads after...first time I was formerly introduced to my now trusty and ancient crony the fabulous Eeeky Beeky legend that is the honorable Mr Michael Hughes....we had thrown up in the same west end sink a few weekends before...100% true about Tavares ...upwards and onwards....

UNDATED

BANNOCKBURN COMMUNITY CENTRE 81/82/83??

 

Regarding this it was actually The Mayfield Centre in St Ninians (small part of Stirling right next to Bannockburn), and to the best of my recollection they played the venue twice. The gigs were at least months apart, maybe even a full year. I always thought it was strange that they played my home town twice but neither time was at the more common Pathfoot hall at the local university.

I can't remember the dates, it was approx 30 years ago so the memory is well oblitererated. I am sure I was familiar with lots of songs so that probably means both gigs were after the release of the debut album.

I've made a couple of songbooks if you're interested. (chords and lyrics for OJ and solo stuff... not exactly finished though)

Hi Jamie

I can offer up two OJ gigs in Cambridge.

The first was at Selwyn College's May Ball in June 1984.  I can't place the exact date I'm afraid.  I do remember they didn't seem terribly pleased to be there and there were only a couple of hundred watching (all in dinner dress).  Very little audience chat and a grumpy Alan Horne roaming the marquee. 

The Boomtown Rats were originally booked but the guitarist broke his leg or something; a vote went around the college asking folks to choose between Sad Cafe and Orange Juice.  Sad Cafe won by a mile but we press- ganged the organisers to go against the popular vote.

They played later that year on 17 November 1984 at CCAT (Cambridge College of Art & Technology - now Anglia University I think) which was a much better and cheerier gig.    You have a gig in Dublin on that date but they were certainly in Cambridge.  I still have the tour poster which says they were in Torquay on 15 November and Watford on 16 November (rather than Belfast).  I've attached a picture of the poster for you.

They also played in Brighton at the Pavilion Theatre on 22 June 1984.  I have the flyer but honestly cannot remember if I was there.

Hello Jamie,
Sat here looking at the tour programme and can update you on the November 1984 'The Artisans Tour'. I saw and met Orange Juice at the gig on the 15th November at Torquay 400 Club, the 16th November in the programme says Watford Hertfordshire College of Higher Education so the Belfast date above may be incorrect. Hope this helps your search..
Best Wishes, Dom

For the record and a gig I don't see on the list..

I attended a Josef K and Orange Juice Headlining gig at Londons Drill Hall in 16 Chenies Steet W1. This must have been 81 or 82 ( I remember Josef Ks song announcements being taped airport ladies voice " Josek Ks next song will be called radio Drill time " etc) ha!

Hi - I have a ticket from a gig from 1982, 27 November at The Sugar House, Lancaster.

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

Posted by Carran Waterfield on August 2, 2016 at 13:56 0 Comments

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.
