Hey folks! my name is Greg, and being 17 I am probably the youngest Edwyn Collins/OJ fan around! People my age generally don't have a clue how much influence their music has had on the current indie…Continue
I have a pair I can't use that I bought through Seatwave under the name L IRVINE. I can't get tickets to Chapel and I don't need money. The say they can't transfer, but presumably that at least means…Continue
Read this this morning on a football website - which spurred me to join this site. (Kano is a Scotsman in Australia who is battling a serious illness. There are some events taking place in Scotland in support of him and his family.)..........
"Wee thought for Kano and his friends and family. Last night I was lucky enough to get into a packed pub in Glasgow to see a free gig by the marvellous Edwyn Collins. You just want to take a look at the recovery he has made from two near-fatal haemorrhages to see what a difference positivity and support can make. Sure, he looks and sounds a different man now. But then he sings the songs he wrote 20, 30 years ago, and it's, just for those three-minute bursts, like none of this ever happened to him. There's hope to be found all over the place, and although his life is immeasurably different, it's still a marvellous life, full of belief and hope and the things that mattered before."
thanks Barry for the pics, vids, and setlist!
setlist is something like... 'the very best of'' or 'essencial hits'
both of edwyn and TFC are my favourite and perfect conbination!
Yes, TFC were perfect! it was very happy to see them together.
the followings are from TFC message board;;
For those who didn't make the more acoustic pre-gig gig at Trongate 103, the set list there was:
Falling and Laughing
Hope and Despair
Rip It Up
I'm Losing Sleep
A Girl Like You
I managed to capture the set apart from "Make Me Feel Again", when I accidentally pressed "stop" button and "I'm Losing Sleep" when my batteries died. A YouTube search for "geomck Edwyn Collins" will bring all of mine up.
Another YouTube poster "supermiffy" has posted "Make Me Feel Again" (apart from the outro).
I'm not sure if anyone has posted "I'm Losing Sleep", which is a shame, because it was brilliant.
Grace - I know the guy who was doing the semi-pro video shooting. His results should be pretty impressive. If you don't have his contact details, just let me know.
There is all the stuff on youtube but there was some semi-pro footage done too. The TFC lads and I will sort out the best way to disseminate it. We hope the TFC will join us in the studio before too long...
