Hiya Gary, Just thought I would let you know I was speaking with Edwyn & Grace after the Birmingham gig, both were "Bigging up" your OJ & Edwyn song books saying how good they were. I hope that gives you a little proud moment! All the best mate. Kieron

Gary,
I'm so sorry I haven't read your comment on my page here. Until now.
I think we should ask Grace/Edwyn (Malcolm should help for Snake Charmer) if they have the lyrics to the songs that are not already in your songbook.
Then you choose the songs you want to add the chords and let me know which ones I should do the same.
Best,
Martin

Well I guess since Edwyn needs a substitute guitarist Johnny Marr should be good enough! I saw one of EC's early comeback gigs with Roddy Frame on guitar and it just reminded me that practice as much as I like, I will never be half as good as him!

i meann not tab...but just figure out chords and words for those earlier songs?

were you able to tab the singles? poor old soul...breakfast time...blue boy...? etc much appreciation for your efforts!

The Glasgow School has all the Postcard singles, it's kind of Heather's On Fire and Ostrich Churchyard together.
Then you can add all the Polydor b-sides that are not on the original albums:
Intuition told me
You Old Eccentric
Two Hearts Together
Tongues Begin To Wag
Barbecue
Snake Charmer
Lord John White And The Bottleneck Train
Out For The Count
Bury My Head In My Hands

and from Texas Fever Remasters: Move Yourself

Great piece of work, I can't believe how much work you must have put into both songbooks. I've just had a go at low expectations and even for a "VERY" slow learner like myself it sounded good enough for my wife to recognise it! Thanks for all your hard work.

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

Thanks

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…
