As there is no news yet from Edwyn or Grace with regard to the 'special guests' for the up coming Edinburgh gigs I was just wondering who people are hoping they will be. Malcolm and members of Franz Ferdinand must be high on the list after joining Edwyn at T in The Park recently. I am assuming that Roddy is playing guitar in the band again so although it will be great seeing two Postcard legends on stage together I don't know if he qualifies as a 'special guest'. From a purely selfish point of view, and with apologies to whoever it actually is, I would love to see James and Edwyn performing on the same stage again even if it was just for one song, Felicity ? Unfortunately I did not see the original line up perform, the first time I saw OJ was at Valentinos Edinburgh '82 with Malcolm and Zeke and although they were great there has always been for me something missing compared to the rapport evident between the original members on the various bootlegs I have heard. Apologies to Malcolm who I think is a great guitarist giving OJ MK2 a more Television type live sound.

On a completely different subject I can remember seeing OJ playing Falling And Laughing as a 5-piece on the 'Something Else' tv programme, obviously just beore the split as both Malcolm and James were there. I have the audio of this just taped from the tv speaker output but have never seen the video crop up again. Video of many of the bands who performed on this programme has appeared over the years, I am thinking particularly of Joy Division and I believe the Siouxsie & The Banshees performance has just been released on their latest boxset. This would be a great addition to the up coming OJ boxset if the video still exists, what do you think Grace ?

if I can only find it. Was that on the BBC? if so it would be easy to get. Is that the thing that Depeche Mode were on the same show? If so, I was there...I remember laughing openly at how terrible I thought DM were. How rude.
It was broadcast on BBC2 so hopefully the tape will be lying in a box somewhere in BBC land.
