I have recently been putting together guitar chords and lyrics for Orange Juice's Albums (You can't hide your love, Rip it up, The Orange Juice and Texas Fever) with the intention (and with Edwyn's permission) of putting it up on the web somewhere someplace sometime. After 25 years though, there are still some lyrics to Punch Drunk that I can't figure out. Can anybody help me? Is there anyone out there interested in playing the songs who hasn't already figured them out for themselves?

Trying to put the songs down on paper was a real labour of love as they were my chief inspiration as a teenager struggling to learn guitar.

Attached is a sample of what I've done. I'd estimate that I'm about 90-95% finished with the basic chords and maybe I'll think about trying to tab some of those beautiful lead lines.

Constructive comments would be much appreciated.

Dear Gary,

This autumn I hope to play the "You can hide your love forever" album live from front to back. With a couple of friends

Your book has been an excellent guide to start things off

I do have some corrections/addition for you which you would like to ad.

I will keep you updated if I come across other additions.

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…
