Profile Information

For Davy Patton

I am writing with Davy's permission. Edwyn Collins is an inspiration to Davy and ,his wife,Ailsa.

my profile photo,is Davy Patton. 

Davy had a brain haemorrhage on 27th April 2018 and Ailsa was told,the next day,that Davy would not survive. 

9 weeks on, Davy is still with us....He is a talented guitar player and this is what saved his life....Music and Guitar were and always will be his life....

The specialists say that Davy's creativity allowed that part of his brain to communicate through the dense bleed,by squeezing Ailsa's hand....an amazing hypothesis.....difficult to prove or disprove...but academic because we watch his slow improvement day by day....

we don't know what the future holds for Davy but Ailsa will get him there,however long and hard that road may be.

Davy and Ailsa fulfilled their dream,to move to Glasgow,in June 2017,because of their passion for the Glasgow music scene.

They are native Geordies who now belong to Glasgow.

In Ailsa's words "We will get Davy home"

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



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
